Foster-to- Transport

Since 2018, our network of fosters have partnered primarily with open-admission shelters to foster more than 1000 cats and kittens until they could be transported out of state.

Our target cats and kittens are those most likely to be euthanized by open-admission shelters because they take several weeks to be ready for the adoption floor:
• Kittens under 8 weeks of age face the highest risk of euthanasia because of the tremendous time and effort required to support and care for these neonates until they are old enough to be adopted. Many shelters don’t track unweaned kittens as they aren’t considered “adoptable” at the time of intake and therefore their numbers aren’t even included in published euthanasia rates.
• Cats and kittens with underlying medical issues such as ringworm, scabies, upper respiratory infection or other acute but treatable and survivable conditions are at significant risk for euthanasia because of inadequate staff or quarantine space to treat the animals.
• Cats and kittens who require additional socialization to be suitable adoption candidates consume more time and resources than shelters are able to offer and often results in euthanasia.

Foster homes provide the critical bridge between a transport spot and a receiving partner out-of-state who will accept the cat. Without a foster home for the cats to complete their minimum 2 week quarantine, they would not even be eligible to transport.
