Volunteer: Foster Parent

Fostering is caring for a rescued animal in your own home until a permanent adopter is found.  It is the primary way that Foster Paws is able to rescue cats and kittens.   Our foster parents take these cats in, clean them up, get them healthy, and shower them with love until a forever home is found.  You don't have to be an animal expert to foster with us.  All you need is a safe home, a willingness to learn, and a love of animals.  We'll help you with the rest. We will cover all medical costs associated with your foster cat.  We ask that our foster parents provide the food, litter, and other basic supplies associated with cat care. You will be required to bring your cat(s) in for vaccinations, vet appointments, and weekend adoption events.  If you are not able to bring them in, we ask that you find someone to team with that can help with that part of the foster experience. We encourage our foster parents to treat their foster cat(s) like resident cats, giving them the love and attention that every animal deserves. Our cats and kittens are mostly pulled from the euthanasia floor of local shelters where they have run out of options and run out of time.  The more foster parents that we have, the more lives we are able to save. Save a Life!  Foster today!
