Foster Care

Foster parents provide short and long-term care for cats and kittens in their own homes. By offering your time, love and attention, you prepare your foster kitties for adoption into a permanent, loving home.

There are many reasons why a cat or kitten is placed into a foster home. For example, a momma cat and her nursing kittens may need a home environment where they can feel safe and receive proper socialization or a senior cat may need hospice type care in their final days.

The most common reasons include:

  • being too young for adoption
  • needing time to recuperate from an illness or injury
  • needing socialization or behavior modification

These cats/kittens will be in your care until they are ready to be placed for adoption. This could mean anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Being a foster parent isn't easy but it is incredibly rewarding. If you have room in your home and heart to foster a cat in need, consider being a foster parent.

As a foster parent, you will be expected to:

  • provide daily care, feeding and any necessary medications
  • socialize cats/kittens and give them plenty of TLC
  • transport your foster cat to veterinary appointments
  • isolate foster cats/kittens from your own companion animals

We'll cover medical expenses but fosters will be asked to supply their own food and supplies. Every little bit helps!

Pet Food Express

Must be 18 or older to volunteer by yourself.

Fixed schedule.

Volunteers are needed to help take care of our cats at Pet Food Express (1152 Blossom Hill Rd San Jose, CA 95118). This includes cleaning cages/litter boxes and feeding cats at this adoption site. Other duties include wiping out cages with cleaner, changing bedding, and giving cats free time outside their cages.

Shifts usually take 2 hours, but the timing is strict: 9-11AM and 5-7PM. Must be on time and must stay entire time.

While caring for the cats, the public is also able to adopt cats. This also requires volunteers to screen potential adopters, willing to say "no" to unqualified adopters, who are familiar with cats, have excellent verbal communication skills, and are good listeners. 

Training is provided.
