Best Friends is starting Kitten & Cat foster program in Polk County, Florida! Your community in Polk County is important to us and vital to achieving our No Kill 2025 goal. This will be a satellite foster program which means that it is run by Best Friends staff that is not located in the vicinity of the program but is anchored by a priority shelter and supported by local volunteers.
Opening your home to a foster pet saves lives, plus it frees up space for another pet to be rescued. Fostering a pet, whether for days, weeks or months may be short-term, but the results are long lasting - not only to the pet, but to you, too. Studies have shown that having a furry friend around can reduce anxiety and help relieve stress - not to mention brighten even the dreariest days.
We aim for animals to be adopted from foster homes in about 4 weeks (assuming the are old enough, kittens can't be adopted until they are 8 weeks old) but we can work with the time you have available.
If you are interested in becoming a foster email us at fosterpolk@ bestfriends.org and we can help get you set up.
Every day, nearly 2,000 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters. But every day, there's something all of us can do to help save those animals. Together, we can Save Them All.
