Lucky’s Cat House Fostering

Do you want to make a life changing difference? Have you ever considered fostering?

Lucky’s Cat House is always seeking fosters. As the only feline shelter in 3 counties, the need for foster care is considerable. As a foster parent, you are a hero! You create a vital link in the network that saves feline lives. In return for your time and care, you get training and support! And lots of love and gratitude too! You may wonder why a cat needs foster care. It’s simple, cats and kittens need time and a warm, safe place to get their bearings while they get ready for finding their forever homes.

Ready to be a hero? Not sure? Afraid you’ll fall in love and won’t be able to let go? Talk to us, we’re foster parents too. 

What does it mean to be a foster family?

Cat and kitten foster parents provide short and long-term care for animals in their homes. By offering your time, love, and attention, you prepare the foster cat or kitten for adoption into a permanent, loving home.

Common reasons cats and kittens are in foster care:

  • They are too young and/or underweight to be placed up for adoption.
  • A momma cat and her nursing kittens need a home environment where they can feel safe and receive proper socialization.
  • Cats or kittens need time to recuperate from illness, injury, or health issues.
  • Cats who need domestication and one on one attention.
  • The area's need for feline help is too great for one shelter to house and care for all the felines in need. We utilize fosters to help with the need.

Duties as a Foster Care Parent:
