Foster Homes for Adoptive Cats & Kittens
1 person is interested
Purrfect Cat Rescue is looking for people interested in opening their homes to cats and kittens currently up for adoption. Our core volunteers will guide those new to caring for a pet through the process, provide all medical care, as well as litter and food for those worried about the financial commitment. In addition to fostering the cats in your home, you will be responsible for bringing them into our adoption clinics a couple of days a week and taking them to any required veterinary appointments. We are open to any type of family, as long as they have the time and abilities required to get the job done.
Volunteers can set their terms, within reason, should they prefer bottle babies or weaned kittens, but in general we require you to take at least a pair of cats, if not an entire litter (usually not more than five) so that the cats will have companions to play with and learn from. We often get requests from people who wish to only foster a single cat but since most cats and kittens come to us in multiples, a single-cat foster tends to complicate rather simplify things for us. If you prefer short-term fostering, we may also be interested in taking on a few "emergency fosters" who can foster cats for just a couple of weeks while another foster is on vacation or has a personal emergency.
Fostering animals is a good introduction to the responsibility and fun of having a pet in your home and can be a useful tool in teaching young people responsibility and thinking beyond their own needs.
Those interested can contact us by e-mail at email@example.com or at our weekly adoption events; the times and locations are listed at purrfectcatrescue.org
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
