Rescued some stray kittens from the street in South America. How to find them a good home?
Some background: My partner and I have been visiting Paraguay for the past 3 months. The situation for stray animals in Paraguay is very grim. There aren't any animal shelters or rescue groups in the entire country. Dogs and cats that find themselves without homes are forced to fend entirely for themselves, eating scraps and garbage. The lifespan of a street animal is less than 6 months, and the majority die of starvation, cars or disease.
A few weeks ago, we found a pair of three week old kittens in the middle of the street mewling, far too tiny to survive on their own. It was certain that if we didn't take them in they would be dead within a few days. We took them inside and fed them with an eye dropper. They began to perk up and soon their personalities blossomed. Four weeks later, we have two beautiful sisters who are in good health, have their shots, and are ready to be rehomed when we arrive back in Sacramento next week.
is the acrobat of the pair. After playing with her sister, she likes to sleep in laps and snuggle with her person. Her tortie orange colors are beginning to show, and she has beautiful white eyebrows and a white spot on her chin.
is a bit more calm and collected. She loves curling up on knees and laps for a good scritch. She is perfectly black with bright green eyes and a very expressive face. Her favorite toy is a tiny cardboard box that she hides in to stalk her sister
They have been through a lot of change in just a few short weeks and are completely bonded to one another. We would really love them to find their forever home together. We are thinking it shouldn't be too hard since they are so cute and have such a unique story, but so far posting to the /r/sacramento reddit and our facebook hasn't turned up any bites. I'm very hesitant to dump them in the shelter because I fear they'll get lost in the shuffle and/or they'll get separated.
We cannot keep them, we already have 3 animals and the landlord absolutely will not permit more (not that I blame him). Anybody have ideas for organizations I should contact or places I should put up fliers to find them a good home?
