Kitten Foster Home

In the spring and summer months we can become inundated with kittens that are too young to be adopted. Rather than keep them in the shelter where they are at risk for getting sick, foster homes provide a safe environment until they are ready to come back to the shelter for their spay/neuter surgery, after which they will be ready for adoption.

Fosters will keep animals an average of 2-4 weeks unless it is medically or behaviorally indicated otherwise. Some pets need more time because of age, illness, injury, or behavior issues. You will be told up-front before you agree to foster the pet(s) how long of a commitment we believe it will be.

What are the Responsibilities of a Foster Family?

  • Provide a safe, clean, caring environment
  • Provide kittens with an area in which they can be isolated from family pets
  • Provide food, water, litter, and toys/enrichment
  • Provide exercise and socialization as appropriate
  • Monitor any medical and/or behavioral problems
  • Administer medication if necessary
  • Transport to/from any necessary appointments at the shelter
