Fostering Cats and Kittens

Cats and kittens of all ages need foster homes for a variety of reasons. We are always in need of foster parents who can care for:

  • Underage kittens
  • Mother cats with kittens
  • Kittens who need socialization
  • Sick/injured cats and kittens

JHS provides all necessary supplies and veterinary care. You supply the space, the time, and – of course – the love!

Want to foster adult cats who could use a break from the shelter?

If you’d like to treat an adult shelter cat to a mini-getaway, then our Shelter Staycation program is for you! Shelter Staycations give our adult cats a much-needed break from the shelter and help us learn all about their personalities. While hosting a cat for a Staycation, you can help them find a home by promoting them online and telling your friends and family all about them!

You can bring a cat home for a Shelter Staycation Monday through Friday. Cats must be brought back to JHS every other weekend so that they can be seen by potential adopters during our busiest times.

If you’re interested in hosting a cat for a Shelter Staycation, simply complete our Staycation Sign-Up form.

After submitting the Staycation Sign-Up form, you will be asked to make an appointment to come in and pick up your furry house guest!

Become a foster first responder!

Can’t commit to fostering for more than a day or two? Become a foster first responder! Foster first responders assist the shelter on a nightly basis by taking our tiniest kittens home for the night, feeding and providing TLC, then returning them to the shelter the next morning.
