And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Cat Foster Parents provide a temporary happy and healthy home to cats and/or kittens rescued from Milwaukee Animal Control (MADACC). MPA Cat Foster Parents love and care for foster cats as they would members of their own family. Cat Foster parents must be fully committed to the well-being and needs of cats and/or kittens in their care until adoption. A Cat Foster Parent's primary responsibility is to get the cat and/or kittens ready to be adopted into their forever homes by meeting the physical, mental, and health needs of the pet in their care. Foster Parents (along with Adoption Counselor) will conduct meet n’ greets in the foster home after potential match is determined from received inquiries on the foster animal (once ready for adoption). Foster Parents must be able to transport their foster cat to vet appointments and spay/neuter appointments. MPA Foster Parents are supported by MPA volunteers and will be given the tools necessary to succeed.
Training: Application, background check, home visit, and new foster orientation required.
Time Commitment: Complete. Cat Foster Parents must be fully committed and dedicated to the animals in their care until adoption.
Travel: Required to transport foster cats in your care to veterinary appointments, etc.
