Foster Kittens and Cats

Fill out a “Foster Information Form” today!

Foster kittens and cats at SAFe Rescue!Committed, caring volunteers open their homes and hearts when they foster kittens and cats until they can be placed
with their forever family.

You provide their kitties with the time, love, and space that they need.

We provide the supplies and covers all necessary expenses, including food, litter and medical care.

Types of Foster Scenarios

  • Litters of kittens too young for adoption
  • Bottle-baby kittens who require round-the-clock care
  • Pregnant cats
  • Adult cats who need socialization before adoption
  • Adult cats who don’t cope well at the adoption center and require a home environment
  • Sick cats or kittens who need time and TLC to help them recover

Requirements to Foster Kittens and Cats

  • Have the ability to keep foster cats or kittens indoors and separate from your household pets
  • Be able to make a minimum commitment of 2 weeks for an adult cat or 2-3 months for kittens
  • Have at least 30 minutes twice a day to spend caring for and socializing foster cats or kittens
  • Complete a successful home check by a SAFe Rescue representative

Transportation Requirements

Foster homes with kittens must have regular access to a car. Kittens must come into the adoption center regularly for check-ups and appointments, normally 2-4 times per month. Foster homes must also be prepared for the possibility of driving a sick kitten across the city on very short notice.

Foster homes without regular access to transportation are welcomed for adult cats in longer term foster situations. These cats usually respond best to potential adopters in a home environment, so please be open to hosting potential adopters, accompanied by an adoption counselor.
