It's KITTEN SEASON again, and that means lots of kittens are being brought into the local animal shelters - some with moms and some without. These babies and moms very often are not able to stay in the shelters because they are too young or simply too fragile and do not do well in the shelter environment. Our organization takes these cats and places them in individual's homes where they receive love and care while they grow old enough to be eligible for adoption.
In order to foster a litter of kittens or cat, you must be able to separate the foster animals from any other animals in the household. Preferably you have experience with taking care of younger kittens, but if not, we will may also have an older cat who needs a safe place to stay or just a break from being at our Petsmart adoption center.
You need to be able to provide adequate supervision of your foster pets, and the foster pets will need to be housed in safe, sanitary conditions. New fosters will need to complete a foster application, contract, and orientation. The rescue group provides all veterinary care (at our approved vet only) and many of the supplies needed, but there may be some small out of pocket expenses related to the care of the foster animals.
If you think you might have what it takes to give an animal a chance by being a foster family, please complete our foster application at www.texasadopts.org/volunteer/foster
