A warm spring breeze ruffles your light jacket; winter is over, and spring has finally come. You watch as the sun slides above the horizon, flooding the earth with warm golden rays. With the return of the warm season comes the revival of the earth and the return of animals and flowers. Know what else comes with spring? That’s right…kittens. Lots and lots and lots of kittens. I know you’re wondering how there could possibly be too many kittens . . . after all, kittens are REALLY cute. This is true . . . but there are just too many kittens out there, and many of them grow up to lead a harsh life on the streets, homeless and hungry. During kitten season, CARE tries to help as many kittens as we can, but we usually get several calls a day from people asking us to take homeless kittens, and we are unable to accept them simply because of lack of space. YOU can help us save kittens by becoming a foster parent for CARE. Fostering is a very rewarding and wonderful experience.
Think you don’t have space? Make space! Even a small spare bedroom or office is better than a cage at the pound.
Worried you might fall in love? Well… you might. But remember that you can only help the others that need you if you can give this one up. Also remember that by fostering a cat, you have done a wonderful thing and helped save this cat’s life.
Can’t afford a foster kitty? CARE pays all foster expenses! Also, CARE attempts to match the foster cat/kitten(s) to your personality and lifestyle.
For more information, please call CARE @ 804-288-9797 and ask all about fostering. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
