Our Foster Program
Fosters open up their homes to one or more cats temporarily. They care for the cat(s) until a home can be found. Families can enjoy kittens or cats without the responsibility of medical bills, and it shows children a way to be of service to their community and to learn kindness towards animals.
Our foster parents drop their babies off at the Petco in California, MD on Saturdays at 9:30am and pick them back up at 2:30pm. We try to coordinate driving to save foster families time. Fostering is an immensely rewarding experience and is literally a lifeline for an animal whose future is uncertain.
Adoption Days are at Petco on Saturdays and Sundays, and we need volunteers to work at the Feral Cat Rescue adoption booth. Our volunteers talk to people about adopting and try to help them find their new best friend! We also interact with the public in other regards, explaining what we do, lending traps, educating about cat care and the importance of spaying and neutering, etc. We have a lot of fun talking about cats and loving on cats all day long (well, from 10-2 anyway). Consider volunteering to work at our Adoption Days one or two days a month.
We are in need of...
--Individuals to help trap and transport cats to the veterinary office.
--Shelters built for feral colonies.
--Signs posted in areas where there are feral cats for free spay and neuter.
--Individuals to spread the word to locate barn situations for ferals.
--Individuals who can go to the barn situations and set up the 30 day cages.
--Individuals who can provide Humane Education to youth groups in the county.
We always need donations of dry and canned cat food for our colonies, kitty litter for our adoption days, plastic containers and straw to use as shelters, and towels or blankets to cover the traps when transporting the ferals to the vet. Donations can be dropped off at the PetCo in California, MD on Saturdays from 10-2.
We always need your monetary support as our biggest expense is veterinary care. For example, you can donate $15 for rabies vaccine, $60 to spay a female cat, or $45 to neuter a male cat.
We appreciate any donation of any amount of money, time, and/or support.
