Give them a new start

NO RESCUE WITHOUT FOSTERS

Fostering is a wonderful way to help a shelter cat get used to a home environment before being adopted into a permanent home. By fostering, you aren’t just helping your foster cat, you’re also helping many more by freeing up space in the shelter so we can rescue another.

As a foster parent, you welcome a shelter cat into your home and provide him/her with care and lots of love. We will supply everything you need for your foster cat, so you needn’t worry about costs.

Do you think you could become a fosterer? Below you’ll find the most important information about becoming a Catland foster. Please contact us if you are interested in fostering our cats, as we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

BENEFITS OF FOSTERING

By offering a temporary home for a cat or kitten in need, you enable the animal to become accustomed to a home environment. This will not only make the cat much easier to rehome, but it will also inform our team about the exact needs and characteristics of the cat. This information is vital for placing our felines into a perfect family home.

Fostering not only helps the cat, but also the fosterer themselves. It allows the carer to have the company of a feline companion, without a long-term commitment. Caring for one of our cats can be a very fulfilling and loving experience.

Providing a temporary home for one of our cats will also free up a place in the shelter.  This enables Catland to rescue another street cat in need of saving.

MORE INFORMATION

A person who has time at home to interact with the cat to gain your trust. Some cats may take a little time to adjust. Others may settle into your home as though they had always lived there. Patience may be required with some of our felines.

We implicity trust our fosters for the wellbeing of the animal.

At any stage that you are worried or have concerns, there is 24hr backup by our experienced team, also our Catland veterinary will be on permanent call.

Our neo-natals will go into specialist foster care with or without their mother. Bottle-feeding requires round-the-clock feeding. If you are experienced in neonatal care please advise Catland.

All our cats require a safe environment without any possibility of escape. During your foster experience, the cat must remain indoors. If you have a balcony, we must ensure that no injury by falls can occur at any time.

  • The refuge may be overwhelming for a cat so a quieter environment may be more suitable for them.
  • Cats that are recovering from surgery that need a little more TLC
  • Cats that test positive for feline illnesses need to go into foster care as we are unable to mix them with the resident cats. ( these feline illnesses are non-transferable to humans).
  • Baby kittens do not fair well in the rescue center until they are fully vaccinated and strong. Kittens can give many hours of fun.
  • Neo natals > only fosters with prior experience
  • Cats without any special needs due to lack of space in the refuge

No, in return for the time, love, and care you offer to our cats we provide everything that you and your foster cat will need:

  • Food
  • Litter, litter tray, bedding, bowls, and toys
  • Veterinary treatment
  • 24×7 help and support

 

A cat might be with you for just a week but, it can also be months – depending on the cat and when a suitable family can be found. We will always discuss the expected duration of the foster period with you before you commit.

Should you become ill or go on holiday, we will arrange the care for your cat.

 

Once the adoption takes place you will receive updates. Most foster carers love to see how their previous foster cats are getting on in their new homes, and seeing them flourish in a forever home can be extremely rewarding. We make it clear to adopters that feedback and updates are very important for our team!
