Frequently asked questions

What does a foster home entail?

Foster homes are a temporary location for our animals to live while recoverying from a major surgery, having kittens, or nursing kittens. When moved to a home environemtn stressors go way down for the animal and allows them to recover at a helathy rate. Disease transmission is significantly lower so that makes foster homes a great alternative to the shelter environemt for immuno-supressed animals such as young kittens.

What is required of a foster home?

1. Approved foster home application 2. Loving environemnet free of stressors 3. Someone who is home often to care for the animal/distribute medication when necessary.

I have pets, can I still foster?

Absolutely! If the animals need to be restricted, we procvide a crate so they arent roaming your home/have too much movement and can recover. So long as your furry family members dont mind the presances of temporary visitors and you are under the Bylaw allowance, you are welcome to foster!

Will it be any cost to me?

No! All supplies you may need while caring for one of our animals will be provided by EHS. This includes dishes, litter scoops, leashes/collars/ litter, food, treats, toys, bedding, etc! If there are items you wish to purchase on your own you certainly are welcome to however it is not expected!

What if I want to adopt my foster?

AKA Foster fail, this is definietly allowed! If you have fallen in love with your temporary house guest, just inform our Manager and we can get you the appropriate paperwork once the animal has been cleared for adoption.
