If you love cats, but can't fit one permanently into your life,fostering might be just the ticket.
So what is fostering? Well, with the number of homeless and abandoned cats on the rise,fosterers provide temporary care, food, shelter, and love,the first essential steps in the rescue process.
Cats need fostering for a variety of reasons: as they recover from injury or illness; if they are infant kittens not yet at an adoptable age; emergency rescues saved from abuse or abandonment; or cats who just need a break from their cage at our adoption center.
Fostering is a wonderfully rewarding experience for cats and their fosterers alike.
For a small investment of time and dedication, the rewards of fostering are huge.It is a temporary commitment, so it suits people who may have a "full house" already or people who travel and can only care for a cat for a short time. Fostering typically requires a two-week commitment, but there is much flexibility in the arrangements.KittyKind bears the cost of medical care for their fosters and, while we hope that fosterers can assume the cost of food, litter (and toys!), all of this is worked out in advance.In the end, it takes so little to give so much! For, without foster, there can be no rescue.
