Volunteer Info - Foster Homes Needed
Thank you for clicking on this page! We're so happy that you're considering volunteering for Abandoned Cats Rescue.
FOSTERING is the cornerstone to our rescue. Without foster homes, we couldn't do what we do. This Q/A list will give you an idea of what's involved in fostering:
Q: Can I choose the kind of cat I want to foster?
A: We always seek to get the right fit. If you have other pets, it matters that these pets get along with the new foster. And it's up to you to determine whether your home would work for moms and kittens cat or a cat with special needs.
Q: What about their health? Do I have to pay for their medical care?
A: A newly rescued cat's health is paramount to us. When a cat is rescued, it's immediately taken to our veterinary clinic to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and given a thorough veterinary exam. If there is any other medical needs, they are taken care of before the cat is placed into your home. Abandoned Cats pays for all necessary medical care.
Q: Do you pay for any of the food or litter?
A: Only if your foster cat requires a special diet. Otherwise, we ask that the foster parent provide the food and litter. (And, if covering those costs proves difficult, we can find a way to get what's needed to you.)
Q: What if I want to adopt my foster cat?
A: We LOVE IT when our foster parents fall in love with their foster cat! Of course, you can adopt your foster cat with our blessings! Fostering is an excellent way of getting to know how your cat will get along with your lifestyle and family.
Please contact us right away if you're interested in fostering. We'll provide you with all the information you need to get started. Often, we can rescue a little darling for you within a day or two!
