FOSTER HOMES

We are looking for short-term (Thanksgiving through New Years) and longer-term foster homes for healthy, fully-vetted, adult cats and kittens. Opening your home to these cats would help us resolve space issues and allow these homeless cats to share the magic of the holidays with you and your family. Additionally, if you are thinking about adopting a cat, this is a great opportunity to to take one for a test drive.

Fostering could begin as early as Nov 23rd and run through Jan 6th. If you could only do part of that period, we are still interested. The adult cats will need a separate, small room in your home. The kittens will need a safe, easy-to-clean space (quarantined from other animals in the house) and a person/family that has time to spend with them. If you are interested in helping and live within 30 minute of Stamford, please fill out the online adoption application and indicate foster. A team member will get back to you. We will cover all medical costs and can provide supplies such as litterbox, food, toys, bedding, etc. if needed. Thank you!
