The shelter always needs extra hands and homes to ready the kitten population for their forever homes, but at this moment, Team Front Street has posted a call for “bottle baby” foster parents on the Facebook page.
“Bottle babies need to be fed every 3 hours or so until they eat on their own,” Team Front Street staff wrote on the Facebook page, so it's a commitment that requires short blocks of time throughout the day.
For people who travel a lot or can’t quite decide cat v dog, which breed, big v. petite, short or long-hair, fostering not only provides a tremendous service to a community and future pet parents, it also provides a testing ground for people to see what works best for themselves and their families and their individual home situations. Fostering animals is perfect for people who want a little love around their homes, but aren't quite in the right domestic situation to commit to being a pet parent full-time.
Call 916-764-6862 to sign up as a kitty foster (if they don't answer right away, staff and volunteers might be bottle feeding babies; leave a message). Once an application is completed, new volunteers will be scheduled for an orientation class and set up with supplies and instructions and ... kittens!
