foster program allows us to save animals who are better cared for in the home – orphaned or feral kittens, pregnant females and medical needs cases– giving
them a comfortable loving setting until they are ready for adoption.
This program is especially critical during kitten season – from early spring and through late fall. Hundreds of kitties need temporary homes until they are ready to be adopted. These kittens might be with a homeless mom who is still nursing them or orphaned and either weaned or unweaned. Ideally, kittens stay in a foster home until they weigh 2 1/4 pounds and are then altered before adoption.
make your foster experience as easy as possible, we will provide you a
starter kit of supplies, all required medications, relevant training,
and on-call assistance. You will receive the general volunteer training and then you will
receive counseling and training with each litter you take home. We
believe in a very hands on approach to raising these kittens and will
teach you about general kitten and mom care, preventative health care and medical concerns , socialization, and behavioral
issues. You will be responsible for providing them with a room of their own, food, litter, bedding, toys and miscellaneous items.
