We Urgently Need Kitten and Cat Fosters in Los Angeles

LA Foster Kitten
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen an incredible response from potential foster volunteers. While we do not have a need for more foster volunteers at this time, please complete our online foster application and we will email you when new online foster orientations become available. Fostering is a lifesaving volunteer opportunity needed year-round and we are excited to welcome you to the team in the upcoming months!

Why We Urgently Need Your Help  

From April through November, there is an influx of kittens in Los Angeles County Shelters, and the ASPCA needs fosters who can help us save these vulnerable lives. Kitten fosters provide care and support to kittens until they are old enough to be adopted or receive a life-saving relocation to an area where they have a better chance of adoption.

Throughout the entire year, we are also pulling adult cats out of the shelters to help them get healthy and ready for adoption. There are always more kittens and cats in need than fosters available. You can make a big difference by fostering these vulnerable animals, only for a couple weeks, and helping to spread the word about your experience to other prospective foster parents. 

We provide all the food, supplies and medical services, as well as all the support you can ask for—all we need from you is TLC. Fostering saves lives!

 How to Become a Foster

To get started, please complete the online application today. In the application, you will need to RSVP for an upcoming virtual information session where you will learn everything you need to know about our program and ask any questions you may have.

Foster Eligibility Requirements

We have some basic requirements. All fosters must:

  • Be 18 years or older.
  • Be willing and able to take your fosters to follow-up veterinary appointments every 2-3 weeks.
  • Keep your foster pets separate from household pets for two weeks in a spare room. If this is not possible, we will provide you with a playpen for them to stay in.
  • Feed, replace litter and keep their area clean.
  • Monitor their daily health.
  • Socialize them (play and cuddle!)
