Why Foster with MEOW Foundation?

MEOW KittensFoster homes are the only resource MEOW Foundation has to help pregnant cats or mothers and their kittens. On occasion, foster homes also provide refuge to frightened, sick or injured cats. Dedicated foster homes are able to provide these cats with the attention and care they require.

At least half of MEOW adoptions each year are kittens. Without the kind foster families who offer their homes as temporary sanctuaries, MEOW would not be able to rescue all these wee little souls. However, requests from the public for rescue assistance for mothers and kittens often exceed the capacity of available foster homes. Please consider becoming part of MEOW’s foster home network.
