About

Fostering is a lot of fun! Providing foster care will certainly be a rewarding experience as you are enabling the cat(s) to go on to the greatest adventure - a place where he/she will be cherished and loved until a great forever home is found. It is the primary way Cat Welfare Advocates can rescue cats and kittens needing help. We’ll match you with a foster cat/kitten (or cats/kittens) based on your requests and experience. After you attend our foster training, you’ll have a better idea of what type of fostering would suit your lifestyle best. We are seeking fosters for all life stages from bottle babies to adult senior cats.

Responsibilities: Responsible for the daily care of a foster cat(s), including feeding, exercising, playtime, socialization, grooming, reinforcing basic obedience and, of course, providing patience, love and security. We will provide all necessary medical care and full support throughout the foster period. Any additional expenses incurred by the foster parent may be tax deductible. Must be willing to work with the cat(s) to help them get ready for adoption. This may include basic training, socialization, etc. You will need to transport the foster cat(s) to scheduled medical appointments and/or adoption events as well as administer any required medications.

Requirements: To be a successful foster parent, you will need a compassionate nature, flexibility, willingness to follow instructions and interest and/or knowledge of animal behavior. Frequent email updates are required, and responsiveness to our team is critical to the success of our foster program. Reliable transportation. Our cat(s) must be fostered indoor only.
