Foster A Cat

Arthur the catOnly Hope Cat Rescue, Inc. is entirely foster home based. We do not have a shelter facility of any sort. This, of course, makes foster homes crucial to our existence. We cannot "buy" good foster homes, so this is one of the most important contributions to our efforts.

Fostering is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have as an animal lover. It offers the best of both worlds to you - the love, affection and gratitude of an animal without the lifetime emotional and financial commitments.

How To Foster

When you foster for Only Hope Cat Rescue, Inc., you are responsible for day to day maintenance expenses, such as food and litter. Only Hope pays for the medical bills and any necessary medications, if required. We work with each individual foster parent or family to show the cats for adoption events or to potential adopters. If you need to go away while you are fostering, we do the pet-sitting.

When matching you up with a foster cat(s), we take into consideration your level of pet experience, your schedule, your desired level of involvement, and of course your current family/pet situation.

If you are not sure that you are ready to adopt a cat, fostering may be the perfect alternative. It allows you to experience what it really takes to care for an animal.

If you are interested in fostering, please contact us or send us the foster application.
