We primarily use foster homes in the following counties: Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Southern Alameda county (South of 580). If you live outside this area please let us know before filling out a foster application.
All of our rescued animals are cared for in foster homes by volunteers who feed and care for them as if it were their own pet, until permanent homes are found. Tailchaser Rescue pays for all necessary, pre-approved medical expenses for our rescue animals.
Unless it is arranged in advance, we ask that foster homes be prepared to keep their foster animals until they are adopted. This can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. If this is a concern for you, please discuss with us ahead of time.
Cats are neutered at clinics either in San Mateo or San Jose. Foster homes transport to and from the appointment on the surgery date.
