Providing a bridge between the past and happily ever after.
Kitty Kat Haven foster parents provide temporary homes for one of our adult cats before adoption. Providing a foster home is a wonderful and personal way you can contribute to saving homeless pets. Kitty Kat Haven cats need extra love and care before they can be adopted. By providing foster care for a few days, weeks, or months, you can be giving a lifesaving gift to one of these unique cats.
- Fostering gives our cats a chance to get used to living with a new family. Of course, taking a foster pet into one’s home, loving him/her, and then letting him/her go requires a special kind of person.
- Fostering will help prepare our cats for adoption into a loving home or proving a terminally ill cat with a loving home at the end of their lives.
We have 3 types of foster
Regular, “Lease for Life,” & Emergency.
- Most regular foster provide basic needs for the cats in their care.
- We provide all medical care, special diets, & monthly flea treatments.
- We set up a family with the basics if they need it to get started, but we can’t continue to supply regular food & litter.
- They can keep a cat for as long or short as they want; we ask them to drop the cat for events or meet & greets if they don’t want people to come to their house.
- We ask them to check in with us regularly and give us information regarding the felines in their care.
LEASE FOR LIFE:
“Lease for Life” fosters, takes, and cares for the cat for the remainder of its lifetime.
- They get beds, furniture, and any other enrichment items their cat likes. We put them on our vet account under their cat name to take them to the vet whenever needed.
- We supply all medically related items, like supplements, RX, and RX food.

- Emergency foster care short term usually no more than 2 weeks.
- We supply everything for the family and give them a date for when we can place the cat somewhere else or can come to the cat building. In the past, we have had people offer to take a sick cat and keep it while they are still on medications or need to heal from something.
How to get started – Kitty Kat Haven has specific procedures in place for screening potential foster homes.
- All cats must be cleared by our veterinarian before going to someone’s home, with the exceptions of emergencies.
- People must first interview with us. We ask about the type of foster’s they are interested in, home environment, and what expectation the foster families have regarding our rescue.
- We then try and match them up with a cat needing placement.
