If you want to make a difference and save a life,
join our Kitten Fostering Program
Tri-Valley Animal Rescue (TVAR) is in urgent need of temporary foster homes to care for the overload of kittens and moms with kittens until ready for adoption (generally 8 weeks of age and 2 pounds).
What should you know about fostering?
Foster parents love, nurture and socialize
They provide temporary homes for kittens prior to adoption. Kittens are fun, crazy, and loving little creatures that will reward your attention many times over. TVAR pays for all medical and food expenses during the fostering.
Fostering is a great way to volunteer in the community
It is flexible, fun, and rewarding. It’s a great way to enjoy a pet if you cannot make a lifetime commitment. Fostering is excellent for college students or military families. If you’re thinking of a pet but are not sure, fostering is a great way to find out.
Kittens are generally fostered 2 – 6 weeks depending on the age that they come into foster and their specific needs. Frightened kittens or kittens taken away from their mothers at an early age need socialization that requires some extra time. TVAR can work with you to find the kittens that you’ll be best suited to foster.
Skills needed to foster
It’s best to have some knowledge about companion animal behavior and health, but we can provide that training if needed.
Time is critical - Even a few hours makes a difference so please don't wait. The kittens need you!
