Fostering is a full time commitment, but it is a necessary part of our rescue!
We're the largest home based rescue on the East Coast and we always can use more help!
Fostering allows a cat the chance to know what it feels like to be loved and cared for.
Fostering reduces the number of cats and kittens in shelters or on the streets.
Fostering makes room for rescues to save other cats and kittens.
Fostering helps shy cats learn to socialize so they can be adopted out.
Fostering gives a cat the opportunity to live in a home rather than inside a cage.
Fostering literally SAVES LIVES!
Why We Foster:
Why do i foster? I am a helper and healer at heart, so it comes natural to me to want to help someone or animals who can’t help themselves in the moment (that’s why I also work in mental health). Some kittens are found with out their mama and they depend on us to keep them warm, safe and their belly’s full! Fostering cats is also very therapeutic! It’s so rewarding to watch a scared kitten grow into a playful loving cat! - Jamie
I foster because it allows me to help the little ones who don’t have a voice in this world. I get to watch each baby (old and young) “grow” into their personalities when they know they are safe and loved. I know that because of our work, these little ones will be cared for and loved for the rest of their life. - Jenny
I do it for the dirty looks after a bath because they made a mess of themselves eating. I do it for the loving looks they give you, showing gratitude for saving them. I do it for the kitten snuggles. I do it to give the voiceless a voice. I do it because if I don’t, who will? I do it for my kids to learn empathy and compassion, as well as responsibility. I do it for the comfort they give when anxiety is high,. I do it for them, and I do it for me. - Olivia
