What type of fostering are you interested in?(Required)
Select all that apply.
Are you interested in being a part of the Bottle Baby Squad?
Bottle Baby Squad is a group of fosters who are dedicated to making sure that no kitten who requires bottle feeding will ever spend the night at the shelter.
Are you interested in socializing fearful kittens?
NOTE: socializing fearful kittens can be a lot of fun but it’s also time-consuming (at least a couple of hours every day) and results are not guaranteed. In general, TCR does not condone socializing feral kittens over 4 months of age.
Are you interested in working with shy, scared, or traumatized adults?
NOTE: socializing these special cats can take more time and work than most fosters but they desperately need you and seeing them grow is extremely rewarding.
What basic care supplies are you able to provide if we cannot?
Have you ever fostered for a shelter or rescue group before?(Required)
Once they are available for adoption, are you willing to network your foster online to help find them a home?
NOTE: anyone interested in adopting must complete a TCR adoption questionnaire, and the match must be approved by a TCR adoption administrator/coordinator, before they can take possession of the cat(s) and/or kitten(s).
Are you willing to bring your foster to adoption events or meet and greets?(Required)
