As a volunteer-run rescue, we depend on the generosity of our community members to help sustain our work. We need people willing and able to open their homes and to help cats and kittens in need.
Foster homes are an important staple of our rescue, because they keep cats out of shelters, help ease the burden on our volunteers, and provide a loving and caring environment for cats, which is so important to their health and happiness! Additionally, foster parents are key to socializing shy kitties, or providing attentive care to young or sick kitties until they are ready to move into their permanent home.
Additionally, if you are not sure if you want the lifelong commitment of owning a cat, fostering provides a great alternative for short-term companionship, or to test out how it might feel to have a cat at home, before you make a longer commitment.
Requirements to Foster
As a foster parent, we ask that you provide the necessities like food, litter, toys, etc., but we provide the vet care and any medicine that the cat might need while in your care. Longer-term fosters are preferred, but at a minimum, we request 2 weeks from foster parents. We are always in need of fosters, and especially are in need of fosters who have experience and time to care for bottle-fed kittens.
