Fostering Application - Homeless Cat Network
Help us save lives by opening your home to kitties in need! HCN's fostering program focuses on the health and socialization of kittens and tame adults rescued in San Mateo County. We provide close, supportive coaching and all equipment, plus we reimburse for food and litter. We emphasize a positive, supportive environment where we work together on fostering and adoptions.

Please fill out the following application so we may have more information about your prior experience and expectations. If you have any questions, please email Thank you!

Tell us why you would like to foster and what your ideal fostering situation would be (i.e.,  sibling kittens, adult cat, etc).  If kittens, how many kittens (minimum of 2) can you foster at one time? *
Where will the cat/kittens be kept?  Do you have an extra room available. (Please be specific): *
How long, on average, will foster kitties be left alone each day?   *
Are there currently any other pets in your home? *
If Yes, please tell us the number and types of pets you have. *Please note, you will need a place to keep foster animals away from your own animals initially, for slow-introduction purposes and also for health reasons.
Are you willing to administer medications should the animal require it?   *
