Got love to share? Consider becoming a foster volunteer!
As a foster volunteer, you would make a short-term commitment to nurture one or more kitties from the shelter in your home on a temporary basis.
Some cats need a break from living in a cage. Providing time in your home helps them get get ready to be adopted. Many cats need a quiet patch of sunlight to recover.
Can you help?
Newborn kittens are so small they need foster care until they're big enough to receive span/ nueter surgery.
Among the animals that are eligible to be fostered, you choose which animal that will go home with you.
Foster volunteers are given thorough training, great support and everything necessary-- free pet food, free medical care for the kitty, free litter, free litter box...
When the kitty is ready to be adopted, you may choose to: Select who the animal will be adopted to, or Bring the animal back to the shelter, or Adopt the animal yourself You can decide when the time is right for you to foster-- on an ongoing basis or you can take breaks.
Note: Fostering is available only to people who intend to foster several kitties a year. This is not for people who intend to foster just a few animals with the intention of selecting one to adopt. Two next steps--
1. One adult in your household completes an initial online application
2. Register and attend new volunteer orientation in the "About Us" section (Foster training is included in new volunteer orientation)
