What does fostering a cat involve?
When you foster, you agree to take a homeless cat into your home and give them love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the cat is adopted.
Why do we need foster homes?
There are many reasons a cat might need foster care. Here are several reasons:
A kitten is too young to be adopted and needs a home until they are old enough for spay/neuter services.
A cat is recovering from surgery, illness or injury and needs a safe place to recuperate.
A cat has not lived in a home before or has not had much contact with people and needs to be socialized.
A cat has been surrendered to our group and needs a temporary home until adoption.
What we provide:
Our group provides all necessary items for the cat to include: food, litter, litter box, crate (if needed), toys, medicine, medical care, dishes and anything else needed while in your care.
What you provide:
A quiet room in your home if you have other pets.
Time to spend with the cat to help make it ready for its forever home.
Communication. We expect our fosters to keep us up-to-date about how the cat is doing.
Pictures and videos so we can share on social medial to help find them a forever home.
Patience. Sometimes cats take time to feel comfortable and safe in a foster home. This takes time depending on the cat and what circumstances they came from. Also, some cats may need to learn manners before they are ready for their forever home. Your patience will be critical in this process.
Transportation to pick up supplies, taking cats to vet visits and meet and greets. We also may need you to participate in meet and greets so the potential adopter can get a clear understanding about the cat(s) personality.
