Foster 1 -Bottle babies (2-6 weeks old)
Foster 2 - Weaned kittens (6-10 weeks old)

Foster homes are asked to provide care for the kittens and provide transportation to and from veterinary appointments as needed and drop them off at adoption events (usually on weekends).

Care for foster kittens includes a strict feeding schedule, cleaning, and lots of snuggling and play time. Also, the fosters are asked to keep track of weights and any other signs/symptoms of getting sick.

Although fostering kittens is a lot of work, it is a very rewarding experience. By participating in this program, you are saving lives and helping kittens find families.

Fosters provide the love and care and we provide the rest! Our program provides all supplies and medical care for the kittens.
