We need loving families to be foster parents!
There are times young kittens are too small for adoption and they need to live in a foster home till they are old enough.
Some cases of kitties that foster include:
Un-weaned orphan kittens that require around the clock care. They need bottle-feeding, warmth and a patient foster parent who can basically act as their mother. The babies are brought back to the Center for adoption at two pounds and approximately eight weeks old.
Weaned kittens are another age group. They may be eating on their own but need foster care to become socialized and grow healthier. These kittens again stay in a foster home till they are two pounds or eight weeks old.
Newborn kittens with a mother is also a possibility. Here we just need a safe home for mom and kittens. Approximately every two weeks they should be brought to the Center to have their progress checked. Those arrangements can be made with our Animal Care Director.
Sick kittens may need foster homes and experienced foster parents to provide supportive care and dispense medications. Each case is different and will be explained by our staff.
During the time you have Center kittens in foster, you will be able to contact our Animal Care Manager with questions or concerns. The Animal Care Manager is available to be contacted so kittens can be routinely checked and then brought back to the Center for adoption.
