Can we stay with you for a while?


The rescue work we do is directly linked to how many foster homes that we have.

Kitten Season is in its SEVEN MONTH for 2016 and we are seeking foster homes for weaned kittens as well as adult cats who don’t do well in shelter environments.

If you choose to help us with kitten, fostering consists of keeping 3 TO 5 kittens in your home for 8 weeks in a spare bedroom that can separate kittens from any pets currently in your home.

In addition to feeding and cleaning time you will need to spend time with the kittens daily to keep them socialized and happy!

Adult cats can often be integrated into the home with other cats and dogs and just need a safe, loving home where they can wait to be adopted. Some of our adult cats are FIV+ and cannot live in Petco kennels. Others are painfully shy or have special needs and need a quiet environment where they can be socialized prior to adoption.

Transport to Orange County adoption events will also be required. We currently hold adoptions in Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach, Westminster and Mission Viejo every Saturday, and Lake Forest on Sundays.

OCSP will provide a starter kit consisting of a Litter box with litter, litter scoop, wet and dry kitten food (bowls not provided).

We get many calls requesting us to take in strays or owner surrendered pets and even though we would love to be able to accommodate everybody we are only able to help those for which we have foster homes. For this reason you would literally be saving lives by fostering pets in need!

We will guide you through the basics if you have never fostered before, and even if you have we will always be available to answer questions and assist in the transition to the foster home!
