Prospective adopters, who have seen a cat they are interested in via our website, are pre-screened and then meet the kitty in their foster home. We value the input of our foster homes in ensuring that their foster kitties end up in loving homes. Many adopters stay in touch making this process even more rewarding.
Unaltered kitties are typically spayed or neutered at one of the clinics listed below. We ask that the foster home transport there and back on the one-day that is required. Kitties are scheduled at whichever clinic is closest to you on a day you are able to make it.

We do have foster homes that like to be temporarily relief foster homes (an example of this would be to foster for a week while the main foster home was on vacation).
Unless arranged prior we ask that foster homes keep the foster cats/kittens until they are adopted. Please do not incur any expenses for which you wish to be reimbursed without checking in with us beforehand. The nature of rescue means we are on a budget and often do routine medical treatments ourselves and if needed we have certain vets we use.
Feel free to give us as much information as possible and questions are welcome. Thank you for considering opening your home and heart to a foster cat!
