Every Kitten Deserves a Chance to Be a #Mightycat!
Orphan Kitten Club is proud to announce our Mightycat Program–the very first grant program in the world to specifically fund the care and protection of neonatal kittens! We believe that every kitten deserves an opportunity to grow, to heal, and to become a mighty cat. We are partnering with approved nonprofit organizations who share our vision, and providing them with targeted grants that save the lives of the tiniest felines.
Orphan Kitten Club currently supports a growing community of more than a dozen #Mightycat Partner organizations throughout the nation. With your help, we can do more.
Our partner applications are by invitation-only at this time. Thank you!

Here are some of the kittens and organizations who have received assistance through the Mightycat Program!
At just 4 weeks old, Blaze was trapped at a local business and rescued by our partner organization, Love Your Feral Felines. This little guy had a severely infected eye that needed medical intervention. Once brave Blaze was stable, he was taken to a specialist to have his left eye removed. OKC was able to cover the cost of his enucleation —and now Blaze is living his best life as a one-eyed-wonder kitten!
At just 12 days old, Marcella was found on top of a roof with a severed leg. Her siblings had all passed away and her mother had been hit by a car. Poor Marcella had a rough start but thanks to our partner organization, The Little Lion Foundation, she was safe. Marcella was immediately taken to a veterinarian who decided the best course of action was a full amputation due to the location and severity of the injury. OKC was able to cover the cost of her amputation —and now Marcella is enjoying life on three legs!
Four-week-old Shimmer was found tied to a tree hanging upside down from her rear leg. She was brought to a shelter where she was going to be euthanized due to her injury and age. Thankfully, a local cat rescue, Love Your Feral Felines, stepped in to give her a chance at life. Shimmer’s leg was infected so badly that the only answer was amputation. Orphan Kitten Club helped cover the cost of her procedure and now Shimmer is enjoying life as a three-legged kitten.
Jared and his brother were rescued from Valley Animal Center in Fresno, California after being thrown from a car. Jared sustained a serious break in his right rear leg that required immediate surgery; luckily his brother remained uninjured. Orphan Kitten Club covered the cost of Jared’s emergency orthopedic surgery. Jared recovered from his surgery beautifully, and now he is able to run around and play just like his brother!
Waffles was rescued at just two weeks old after being abandoned in Hallandale, Florida. She was in critical condition when she was found, and had already developed a serious eye condition. After seeking medical care, it was determined that Waffles’ left eye needed to be removed. Orphan Kitten Club covered the cost of her enucleation, and she is now living her best life in her forever home!
Misty was rescued from a hoarding situation in New York by the rescue group TNR Utopia. She was only one day old when she was found, orphaned from her mother, and bottle-fed by the rescue. When Misty began eating solid foods she started to frequently regurgitate her meal causing her to aspirate. Orphan Kitten Club helped fund a CT Scan that confirmed Misty had ingested a foreign object, which was then able to be removed through surgery!
