Before cats can be adopted to loving families, they must first stay in foster homes. These fosters provide care to cats healing from spay or neuter surgeries and other medical treatments. They also help socialize and observe personalities to help cats be paired with the best fit family. Fosters are responsible for occasional transport for medical care and to Papa's Cat Cafe for events and/or to meet adoptive families.
Can't foster a cat but have a working car and flexibility in your schedule? Transport services are a great way to help! Our cats often need transport to medical appointments or adoption meetings. Sometimes we need specimens delivered to veterinarians or supplies to fosters. We also need help transporting recently trapped cats to available foster homes. It's important work that shouldn't be overlooked!
Caring for the most at-risk animal populations doesn't come free, so fundraising is an important part of our work. Monies raised pay for animal surgeries, medical care, food and litter, medications, and so much more. Our group believes every cat, no matter their medical needs and temperament, deserves to a life with comfort and love. To make that happen, fundraising is essential and we need your help in this area!

PetSmart rotates the space between local rescue groups, and when it's our turn, we need a team ready. Duties include sanitizing condos before cats arrive, regular litter changes, checking food/water, and end-of-the-month clean-up.
