Will you open your home to love?
Many of our cats, kittens, puppies, and other small critters need a bit of help or care before they are ready for adoption. Some examples of animals in need of foster homes are:
- Young animals not old enough for adoption
- Pregnant animals, and nursing mothers with litters
- Animals who may need supportive health care or post-surgery recovery
- Animals who need a break from the stress of the shelter
Fostering an animal in need can be an incredibly rewarding experience, and it changes the fostered animal's life forever.
You might have heard about "Kitten Season." We are always looking for new Foster Parents who are willing to open up their hearts and homes to a kitten (or multiple kittens) who needs a temporary home until they are ready for adoption.
We take care of providing the medical care, kitten food, and supplies. All we need is YOU to give a kitten a the chance to learn how to "cat" and experience the joys of life in a home. Most young kittens need foster homes, especially those less than 8 weeks old. Foster homes are a great way to keep kittens healthy and provides socialization and care away from the stress of the shelter. Our Shelter Manager, Staff Members, and Board Veterinarian will provide each Foster Parent with information and support to help our kittens develop and thrive in their home.
If you are interested in becoming a Pet Foster Parent please fill out our Foster Home Application and send it in to us to begin the process. You can also call or stop by our shelter's office to request an application.
