Why Foster A Cat?
Fostering is one of the most needed and greatly rewarding volunteer experiences. Whether you foster one kitten, a litter of kittens, an adult cat or special needs cat, you are providing a temporary home and loving care until your foster is ready for adoption. Below is a list of questions that Little Orphan Animals would like to know about you and your home before you foster.
- You must be able to provide a safe, quiet and exclusive space in your home for your new foster separate and apart from any other animals in your home.
- You must be able to spend quality time - stimulation is important - playing with it, petting, holding - providing as much human contact as it will allow.
- Patience is needed. If you allow your foster the time to "come around", when it is ready you will be extremely rewarded by your efforts.

Are you willing to have a Little Orphan Animals representative spend some time with you in your home during the first week of fostering?
When your foster is ready for adoption, are you available to attend our adoption days on most Saturdays and be involved and learn adoption procedures? We do interviews of potential new homes, vet checks/references when we feel it's needed, we have a delivery policy and adoption fee. If you would prefer, a Little Orphan Animals representative will handle the adoption for you. Our adoption days are held at Petsmart in Mohegan Lake from 12pm-4pm on Saturdays.
Note: If a foster home decides to keep an animal, adoption forms must be completed.
