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. Submit a "fast track" application

2. Register for and attend new volunteer orientation

3. Complete other paperwork; Register for and attend Fostering Animals 101

Ater you attend RASKC's new volunteer orientation, then you can fegister for and attend Fostering Animals 101 training (free) You will receive details on how to register for this training after you complete the first steps.

Fostering Animals 101 trainings are typically offered twice each month in Kent. Sometimes offered in the Kirkland area too.

Questions? If you have questions, first review RASKC's website, . Then, if needed, you may contact if you have any questions.

Note: Some courts will accept fostering for community service. King County Superior Court does not credit fostering for court-ordered community service. RASKC gives court-ordered community service credit only for traffic violations and comparable alleged offenses.

Share your love and have fun as a foster parent to sweet kitty that needs you.

Thanks for considering this possibility. We look forward to hearing from you...
