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!

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.

Signing up is easy! Text the phrase @jhsfos8 to 81010 to get started.

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!

How to get started:

  1. Stop by our Adoption Center at 8464 Beach Blvd. during our hours of operation: Monday-Friday from 12-7pm and Saturday-Sunday from 10am-5pm
  2. Ask our team at the front desk for a list of cats eligible for a Staycation or explore and look for cats with a Staycation suitcase tag hanging from their kennel!

If you have any questions about our Shelter Staycation program, please email our team at [email protected].
