What is a foster home?
Foster homes are the backbone of any pet rescue organization. They are families just like yours that provide a safe, temporary home environment for rescued cats and kittens to rest, recuperate and prepare to meet their forever families. The cats in foster care benefit greatly from love and attention and living in a home; for some rescue kittens, it may be their very first home.
What does the foster home provide?
As a rescue foster home, you provide the food, a comfy place to sleep and all the love you can spare. Happy Strays will cover all of your foster kitty’s medical expenses, including medications, and provides any special equipment or supplies.
We ask the foster family to treat the foster cat like any other member of the family. Get to know the pet. Any insight you can offer is helpful to the rescue's placement decision. Together, you and Happy Strays can decide what kind of home will be best for your foster kitty.
What if I want to adopt my foster kitty?
We understand that families often fall in love with their foster kitty and can’t imagine their home without them. If you and Happy Strays Rescue decide the cat or kitten is a good match for your family, we are happy to discuss their permanent placement with you.
