Become an Animal Foster in Los Angeles

Kittens need your help! During COVID-19, we are asking for reserve fosters to help us best prepare for the upcoming 2020 Kitten Season.

We’re looking for foster volunteers this to help get our kittens, cats, puppies and dogs into homes until they can be adopted. Every little fuzzball foster care means another pet we can save. Share your email below to let us know you are interested and you will be prompted by email, within seven days, with more information about fostering and a prompt to fill out the full application.

Quick Apply Foster Application

Our Culver City location is equipped with a kitten rescue nursery where we house, treat and foster out thousands of kittens from Los Angeles each year. It’s a big job, which is why we need volunteers like you to help make it happen! Once you fill out an application, you’ll attend an orientation which will tell you everything you need to know about your new role as a foster parent. Then, we’ll hook you up with a litter of kittens and a starter pack of food, litter and other supplies to make your kittens feel at home.

Ready to fill out the Comprehensive Fostering Form? Find the application here. 

Filling out this form puts you directly into our pool of available fosters!

Kitten Foster FAQs:

Q: How long of a time commitment is fostering?

A: Anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks, depending on how old your kittens are. Our staff will work with you to pick out a litter based on your availability, experience, upcoming vacations, etc.

Q: I work full time. Will I be able to spend enough time with the kittens?

A: Yes! Kittens need a few hours of human interaction a day maximum to be properly socialized.

Q: What if my kitten gets sick? Do I have to pay for vet bills?

A: Never. If you think a kitten needs medical attention, you can call our emergency line any time, day or night. We’ll assess whether the kitten needs to see a vet and if so, we’ll take him or her.

Q: What kind of home do I need to have? I don’t have a spare room in my house/apartment.

A: Kittens actually thrive in small places, so space is rarely an issue. If you’re willing to share a bathroom with a litter of kittens, that’s enough!

Q: Can I just get two kittens to start?

A: Unfortunately, cats are fertile and litter numbers are high! It’s more realistic that you’d foster a litter of 3 to 6 kittens. Look at it this way: More floof!
