FOSTERING

Thank you for considering fostering for Project MEOW!

Fosters are an essential part of Project MEOW—the more fosters we have, the more West Philly cats we can save from the uncertainty and danger of life on the streets. Having an animal companion, whether temporary or permanent, has been scientifically proven to enhance mental and physical health. Providing a loving environment prepares the cat for adoption and their forever home. Plus, fostering is a way to have a positive impact on the community.

The program works like this:

  • Fosters provide food, litter, toys, and love to your foster cat or kittens. From time to time, we have food donations that we share with our foster homes. Some of our cats require prescription diets which we will provide at no cost.
  • Fosters take their cats and kittens to local veterinary appointments as required. Especially with kittens, getting them to wellness and vaccination visits is vital. If committing to the kitten vaccination schedule—which can mean vet visits several times over a period of 2-3 months—doesn’t fit your schedule, an adult cat may be a better choice.
  • We only provide kittens in pairs for their well-being and the safety of your curtains, breakables, and toes hanging out of the bed covers! We will provide a single kitten to a foster home with a kitten-friendly dog or cat.
  • A few of our adult cats want to be only-pets, so we especially love to welcome fosters who have no current pets of their own.
  • Fosters can have a range of cat experience from none-at-all (we have lots of easy cats looking for fosters!) to expert-level cat savviness. Whatever your comfort level, we have a match for you!
