Kira’s Kitten Fund
Kira Serisky July 9, 2003 – February 7, 2021
Kira Serisky was 14 years old in April of 2018 when she began her mission to save kittens and educate while doing so. Her motto “If I Can Do It You Can Too” spoke to her belief that no matter how small the act, everyone is capable of pitching in to help cats and kittens in some capacity. Dealing with many health challenges due to Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Kira stayed grounded by rescue work. She loved taking on the tough cases and had shared that fostering was the most rewarding and fulfilling thing she had ever done. Kira utilized her experience from her own medical care and participated in a volunteer internship at River Cover Animal Hospital to further advance her skill and hands-on knowledge of kitten care. Through Kira’s efforts, she was able to save and re-home around 40 at-risk kittens through the fall of 2020, despite her chronic illness.
Kira’s family will continue to post occasionally on her Instagram account, @krazykittens802, where Kira documented updates on her fosters and entertained many with “Rhyme Time Tuesday” until she became too ill to do so.
Kira had plans to save many more kittens and to expand her platform to educate others. While she left us far too soon, Kira’s Kitten Fund will carry forth her legacy by providing support for youth programs in animal shelters and rescues across the United States.
Your donation will go directly towards a special Summer 2021 grant cycle in Kira’s memory, and help young people become engaged in kitten welfare just like Kira.
