Why we need foster homes

Since Shadow Cat Advocates does not currently have a permanent location, volunteer foster homes are at the heart of our animal rescue program. Without foster homes, we could not save the lives of the homeless animals that come to us needing help each year.

You can make a HUGE difference in the life of a homeless pet by agreeing to foster! We will provide all of the food, supplies, and medical care needed by the pet while in your care. All that you have to do is take the animal into your home and provide loving care.

What it involves

Bringing a foster pet into your home is often the first and most important step in giving them a new lease on life. When a foster family opens its home and hearts to one of these pets it is often the first time that the pet has ever felt loved. It is a rewarding experience that helps make the world better, one pet at a time.
We ask that you assist in evaluating the animal’s personality, likes, dislikes, etc. There is no time limit on foster care while we attempt to find permanent homes for the animals. We do ask that the foster volunteers commit to care for their foster pet until a permanent home is found.
