Not only can taking in a needy pet under the Caloosa Humane Society’s Foster Program be a richly rewarding experience, it gives animals who are not yet ready for adoption a chance to live and thrive in caring foster homes.
By offering their time, energy and loving home to an animal in need, foster volunteers provide stress-free conditions to better prepare the animal for adoption into a forever home. This enables kittens and puppies to grow and be socialized, or in some cases with older animals, mature or recuperate. Some animals may need as little as two weeks of care, while others may need care for up to three months.
Foster volunteers donate their time and loving home to pets in need. The Caloosa Humane Society contributes necessary items such as food, litter boxes, etc. and, provides any medical services or supplies should the need arise.
I never thought I would fall in love again at 50, and again, and again, every time a kitten makes it into my hands I’m head over heels in love again. For me, it’s an honor and pleasure to give these little kittens the best start in their young lives after losing their Mother.
Fostering baby animals, wild or domestic is so satisfying. Watching them go from helpless babies that depend completely on you for survival to adoptable pets is just the best feeling. It’s a lot of work but it’s so worth it in the end.
I love fostering mama cats and their kittens. The profound sense of joy in seeing these youngsters grow and discover their new world is unmatched – it can be a lot of work but I can always count on smiling at their antics and sheer zest for life!
