We’re always looking for dedicated volunteers concerned about the welfare of abandoned, abused and surrendered cats who are willing to donate their time, energy and passion to our rescue efforts.
First, we’ll discuss the fostering process. If you are looking to volunteer in a different role (there’s several), please keep scrolling or simply click here.
Become a foster parent
Thank you for considering becoming a foster parent! By being a foster you make it possible for us to take in kitties we would otherwise not have room for and would be otherwise euthanized.
Cat Therapy and Rescue Society is a registered charity that saves approx 50-100 cats every month and our goal is to take cats who otherwise would be put down and rehabilitate them and put them into forever loving homes. While fostering for us we take full responsibility for the pet and provide them with any necessary medical, food, litter, and other needed supplies.
We often need fosters for adult cats or kittens when our adoption centre is full or cats that are sick and need somewhere to recover. The cornerstone of any rescue group is the support of volunteers and those who offer to open their home as a foster parent to an animal in need.
Without foster homes, we would not be able to save these innocent lives.
There is no set amount of time but of you can foster until they find a home or there is a spot at the centre that would be best! That can take anywhere from a few weeks to a month. If you need to go away or can no longer foster then we will pick them up immediately.
