Foster a cat or kitten(s) in need
The foster parent is responsible for caring for the homeless cat or kitten until it is physically and socially ready to be adopted into a permanent home. In addition to routine food, shelter, care and attention, in many cases you will even get to name the cat/kitten(s) that you foster.
Our Foster Coordinator will provide support and assistance throughout the process and will assist with any medical concerns, scheduling for necessary medical care and finally arranging for the cat/kitten(s) to be brought into an adoption cage until a permanent home is found.
So the question is…Is fostering for me?
Becoming a foster parent can be a wonderfully fulfilling experience. To know that you have contributed to saving the life of a cat the otherwise may not have had a chance in the wild is a rewarding feeling that you will enjoy. Although many underage cats are able to be raised and socialized by people and grow to be happy, healthy pets, it is imperative that each foster parent know that this is not always the case. When you agree to foster a cat/kitten(s) ask for the history (i.e. Where are they from? Shelter rescue or stray rescue? Have they been handled by humans?). Be certain you are able to cope with the expected challenges of the particular situation.
