We are always in need of good foster homes for cats and kittens. Below is a Q & A of most frequently asked questions concerning fostering.

Q: How long would I have to foster the kitten(s)?
A: The exact timeframe depends upon the age of the kittens. You will foster the kittens until they have been adopted. The kittens MUST be spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The kittens are ready for spay/neuter when they reach 2.5 to 3 pounds. Typically, this is between 10 to 14 weeks of age. Please keep in mind that it may take a couple weeks to schedule your kitten for spay/neuter. On average, be prepared to foster your kitten(s) from 1 – 2 months.

Q: What happens when the kitten(s) are ready to be spayed/neutered?
A: This is the “fun” part. When your kittens are 2.5 pounds, you call our CATline to schedule a date for spay/neuter. You will drop off your kitten(s) at the Petsmart on Truxel at 6:00 am and pick up around 6:00 pm that same day. Detailed information is available in the Foster Manual provided to all fosters.
