We couldn't do it without our fosters

What is fostering?

"Fostering means bringing in a cat with the goal of nurturing them for a while until they can be dispatched to a permanent home with a family who'll love them forever. It's a crucial part of the animal rescue world"

Do I pay for medical?

Nope! Cuddles Rescue and Lounge is responsible for all medical expenses while the kitten(s) or cat(s) are in your care. You're only job is to socialize them and provide food and litter. (If unable to provide food and litter, accommodations can be arranged)

How long will i have the cat(s)

We put our cats in foster care until they are vaccinated and spay/neutered. This can be anywhere from 1-3 months depending on the age of the cat(s) you're fostering

Who do i contact if something happens?

Every foster is assigned a foster coordinator. This person will be your contact if anything happens to the kitten, or if you just have questions. Your coordinator will be with you through the whole process!

Frequently Asked Questions

After I apply, what happens?

We will reach out with additional questions based on your application. If approved, you will be added to our foster Facebook page where you will see all the cats in need of foster homes. 


What if I have pets, can i still foster?

YES! If you have additional pets, your pets must be current on vaccinations. Since these are shelter animals, we don’t want your pet getting sick. 

What if I start to foster and change my mind?

Reach out to your foster coordinator! We are happy to find a new foster if it doesn’t work out. 

Where do the foster cat(s) come from?

We get all of our cats from shelters or rural areas that need our help. 

What materials should I purchase before fostering?

Most items can be provided if needed. However, we recommend a litter box, litter, food/water containers, food, heating pad (if neonate), and scale. 

Can I write this off on my taxes?

YES! Any items you purchase for the kittens you’re fostering will count as a donation to Cuddles Rescue and Lounge and is tax deduction.
