If you'd like to help rescued cats or kittens
and can't adopt, perhaps you'd like to consider becoming a foster carer.
A foster carer takes the rescued pet into their homes and cares for all their
needs until we find a permanent home for them. ART will assist by paying for
vetwork and sharing donations of food, kitty litter etc. A foster carer is asked
to provide transport if the kitty needs to go to the vet and to provide a safe
environment, which means an indoor only home and/or a suitable cat enclosure
attached to the house.
We'd also like our foster
carers to participate in the meet and greet for the kitties in
their care, because the introduction of kitty to a potential new
family will be so much less stressful for them if they can stay
in their own familiar territory. This also means the potential
adopter will see him/her as relaxed and natural as possible and
the carer gets to meet the new family, so parting with their
baby is just that little bit easier.
If this sounds like something you'd enjoy doing, please email
your phone number and one of us will give you a call. We are
always needing foster carers because without them, we could
never save any kitties.
