Be A Foster – SAVE A LIFE  

Fostering can be very rewarding and is a vital part of CARE’s mission of rescuing abandoned and homeless cats and kittens.  As a foster you will be given training and assigned a mentor.  CARE pays all cat expenses.  You provide a loving home.  Learn more about becoming a foster by submitting an online interest form below.  (Fosters must be at least 21 years of age)
