Fosters truly are the FRONT LINE for these cats & a critical step in saving more lives! A foster home is a temporary living situation for cats while they are awaiting placement in a permanent home. Foster families provide shelter, food, care, love, and guidance. The number of cats we can save depends entirely on the number of people who will open their homes and hearts to foster them. For some of these cats, this will be their first experience being treated as a family pet. You are their salvation and you should never underestimate the important role you are playing in their lives!
Fosters will keep cats an average of 4-8 weeks. Some cats need more time because of age, illness, injury, or behavior issues. Your time commitment will be discussed up-front before you agree to foster the cat, but most foster families keep the cat until the cat gets adopted.
