Kitten Foster Program

Each year, 50+ foster families give nearly 400 cats and kittens a safe, caring temporary home. In foster, there’s socialization for young kittens, space for mother cats to raise their young, and time for sick or injured cats to heal. Without these foster homes, many of these cats and kittens would not survive. Foster homes also free up space within the shelter, which means more lives are saved!

Specific goals of the Foster Program include:

  • Providing a safe, nurturing environment for mother cats to raise their kittens
  • Allowing sick or injured cats/kittens to heal in a relaxing environment
  • Giving long-term feline residents time away from the shelter in a home setting
  • Correcting behavioral issues

Foster home requirements:

  • A warm, dry, safe place in a separate room, in the home, away from other animals
  • The ability to keep accurate records of weights, etc. if required
  • Commitment through the duration of the foster process: 10 days to 3 months for kittens (depending on the age of the kittens at the time of foster)
  • Spend a minimum two hours per day with foster kittens (and mama if she’s with them), for socialization and basic care
  • Ability to travel occasionally to and from either the Peoria or Youngtown shelters (depending on which location the foster kittens came from)
  • Foster families with children are welcome, but parents must assume responsibility for the foster cat/kittens
