Fostering Saves Lives.


Why Foster with CATS?

Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience and a great volunteer project for families or individuals who love animals but can’t commit to having a full-time pet.

By becoming a volunteer foster parent, you’ll get the chance to spend quality time with some tiny kittens, teach a dog how to love and be loved, or watch an injured kitty get back on her feet thanks to your care and attention. There’s nothing like comparing the “before” pictures of your foster animal with the “after” pictures in his or her new adoptive home!

Caring About The Strays could not survive without foster parents. C.A.T.S. Foster Care Program gives animals who are not yet ready for adoption a chance to live and be loved.

Through our fostering program C.A.T.S. is able to:

• Reduce the amount of time an animal lives outside, unloved and unsafe
• Accept more animals into our rescue
• Increase adoptions by better preparing animals to become beloved family members
• Learn more about the animal so he or she can end up in the best home possible

Our greatest foster needs are for:

• Orphaned kittens and puppies
• Cats
• Momma cats nursing litters
• Dogs


C.A.T.S. supports foster parents with all the food and supplies they need to take care of their foster animals; we cover all medical expenses including medication. If you run into questions or need help in anyway, our Foster Care Team will be there to support you every step of the way.

Whether you work full-time or are usually at home, there’s a foster placement appropriate for you. We understand that some people are able to foster for a couple of months and some are only able to do so for a couple of weeks; our team will work with you to make the experience as easy and rewarding as possible.

Getting Started

If you’re able to assist, and are dedicated to compassionate animal care, we’re looking for you!

Please begin the process by completing our Foster Application. The questions asked in the application are to ensure that foster animals are carefully matched according to the animals’ needs and the foster parents’ abilities. Once completed, our Foster Care Team will send you additional information and get you started.

C.A.T.S. reserves the right to approve all fosters, as we are committed to the welfare of the animals in our care, as well as meeting your personal needs. We thank you for your cooperation.
