Foster Homes for Cats and Kittens

Save to Favorites

Protectors of Animals

  • 17 people are interested

We are in need of foster homes for all types of situations:

  • Young kittens who are weaned from their mothers, but not yet old enough for adoption
  • Pregnant/nursing moms with their babies
  • Bottle babies
  • Adult cats who are in need of quarantine
  • Adult cats who need assessment/socialization

What you would need:

  • An area of your home where the fosters can be kept separate (a guest room, study, or bathroom works great)
  • Some time every day to devote to the fosters (amount depends on age of the fosters)
  • Typically, the foster homes provide the food and litter. Protectors of Animals provides for the rest, including all medical care
  • No experience with fostering is necessary. Protectors of Animals has an excellent support network of foster homes and our medical team. Training is provided.

If kittens are not your calling we have many adult cats we would like to get into a safe environment until a space opens up at the Cat Adoption Center.

Mission Statement

The Protectors of Animals (P.O.A.) is a 501c3 non-profit all volunteer, all donation organization whose mission is to rescue stray, abused, abandoned and impounded cats and dogs. P.O.A. promotes spay/neuter prior to adoption preventing over population and the unnecessary euthansia of our companion cats and dogs. Our mission statement " To improve the lives of dogs and cats in the communities we serve."


P.O.A. was founded in 1975 and is run mainly by volunteers as we have one employee that oversees the medical care of the cats at the adoption center. We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals into loving homes, promote animal spaying/neutering, combat cruelty to animals and educate the public on animal care and welfare.



We'll work with your schedule.
