Become a Cat Foster

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Louie's Legacy Animal Rescue

Fostering saves lives! Every pet placed in a foster home opens up a space in a shelter for another animal in need. By fostering a pet, you just saved two lives.

As a foster parent, you’re a surrogate family, taking a homeless dog or cat in need into your home and caring for the animal until the pet is adopted.

  • Fosters help get pets adoption ready by:
  • Helping a sick/injured pet get well
  • Getting a pet used to being in a home
  • Socialization with people and animals
  • Basic training
  • Promoting their foster online and at adoption events
  • Providing love

We’re looking for fosters who can:

  • Provide a loving and supportive home to animals in transition.
  • Comply with instructions from the Medical Team regarding medications and treatments of the animal. Work with the Medical Team to transport the animal to and from veterinarian appointments.
  • Arrange to have photographs taken by one of our photography team volunteers in a timely manner. High quality photos help us get animals adopted quickly!
  • Complete our biography questionnaire in a timely manner. Detailed and interesting bios attract attention and help animals find their forever home!
  • Bring the animal to adoption events; ensure the animal is available during events to maximize the opportunity to find a forever home.

If you’re looking to make a difference in the life of an animal and become an important part of the mission to save homeless pets, complete our online fostering application at - https://www.louieslegacy.org/wp/get-involved/foster/
