Feline Rescue is an all volunteer organization, and we needů volunteers! Volunteer opportunities are endless and include help with fundraising, community and school education, outreach and public relations, maintaining feeding sites and, of course fostering cats or kittens.

Foster Home ProgramFoster Application
Foster homes are the heart of Feline Rescue.
Term and Training
Volunteers may choose how long to foster -- a week (called an "emergency foster"), a month or until an adopter is found. We also can provide vacation coverage. We provide a "foster care guide" and also have a mentor available at all times to answer questions. High school students can receive community service credit for fostering, provided their parents approve.
Vet Care and Expenses
All cats and kittens have received necessary vet care, and all approved vet expenses for the fostered cat are covered.
Some "resident" cats and dogs are fine with a new temporary roommate. If not, the foster cat or kittens could be housed in a spare bedroom, family room or other vacant space.
We need special homes where a cat can be taken initially for assessment before being placed in a "regular" foster home. During kitten season, we sometimes need people to bottle feed newborn kittens and to help socialize shy or frightened kittens.
