About

We are looking for fosters in the Middlesex county area of NJ.

Cat/Kitten

Cat/Kitten foster homes are always in demand. Mothers and kittens must always have separate living quarters to give momma cat a secure place to take care of her young. Most foster parents use a spare bathroom or utility area for the family. Cats must stay indoors at all times, where it is safe and secure until they are adopted.

Dogs/Puppies

Dog fosters should ideally have a fenced yard, adequate for the size dog you want to foster. And you need to be able to offer a place in the house to the foster dog. All your own pets need to be spayed or neutered and up-to-date on their shots. And you must be 21 years of age or older.

Make your home pet friendly. Before you bring your foster animal home, make sure you "pet proof" your home. For example, remove poisonous plants and protect furnishings. Keep the animal’s room warm and comfortable. Also, take steps to prevent the animal from escaping.

Recognize your limits. Fostering requires a great deal of time and energy - both emotional and physical. Don’t overextend yourself by fostering animals too frequently or you may burn yourself out.

Enjoy being a foster parent. Although fostering takes a great deal of time and commitment, it can be an incredibly rewarding experience.
