We've talked about fostering on this blog before, and it will likely be a topic that will come up regularly. The reason? Fostering is one of the most important ways you can help save NYC's homeless animals. We can't rescue if we don't have a place for the animals to live, so that's where fostering comes in.
Like foster care for children in need, foster care for cats and dogs works the same way. We provide all medical care, you feed the little buggers and give them lots of love. Fostering is great for people who want a pet but aren't sure they're ready for a long-term commitment or it can be a great way to find which animal is right for you. Many people foster until they meet their soul-pet.
Right now we have several cats and kittens looking for safe, loving foster homes. One of our fosters has about 15 cats in her apartment, but that's not fair to her or the cats, so it's time to move some out. If you or someone you know would be able to take two or three kittens, it would be wonderful!
Bishop, a gorgeous two-year-old russian blue is coming in from Connecticut. He has a possible forever home, but he needs a foster home until his adoption is final. It might be a very quick foster or it could be a foster situation with an unknown end date. Bishop is neutered, fiv felv neg and gets along with other cats.
We're also in need of a foster home for a five-month-old black and white tuxedo who was found in a basement. The woman who found him was given one day to place him before he is taken to Animal Care & Control. She has not been able to find him a home.
