Become a Foster

Foster Volunteers take animals into their own homes on a short term basis who, for a variety of reasons, are not ready to enter our adoption program.  In Spring and Summer, we have many, many kittens not yet old enough for their spay or neuter surgery.  Throughout the year adult cats and dogs may also need to be fostered; they may be in need of medical care, socialization to overcome shyness, or behavior modification and training.  Want to help?  We have foster opportunities in both San Luis Obispo (cats & dogs) & Atascadero (cats only). Please click on the location where you would like to help, fill out our Foster Interest Form, and we’ll be in touch.

Interested in caring for newborns but worried about the time it takes to bottle feed a litter.  Check out this video - it includes step-by-step instructions to create your own "Udder Love"  litter feeder.
