RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A Raleigh woman is using peoples’ love of social media accounts featuring animals to save lives.
Traci Highsmith is the woman behind the mega-popular Instagram account “Raleigh Kittens.”
Highsmith has been fostering kittens for nearly four years and has helped just more than 100 kittens and mom cats.
She started “Raleigh Kittens” about six months after she began fostering, with the goal of getting a local following so people would want to adopt them.
