About Our Rescue Group:

FosterCat's mission is to develop and sustain an organization to provide temporary foster care for cats and kittens in private homes until permanent homes can be found.

Our Adoption Process:

We currently foster cats from the Western PA Humane Society and from some outside sources. All cats are tested for FELV, vaccinated (including rabies), treated for fleas, earmites and parasites and spayed/neutered PRIOR to adoption. All cats are placed at local PetsMart stores for adoption.

Potential adoptor must fill out a questionnaire. Landlords are contacted to make sure renter is allowed pets. If adoptor already owns animals, vet is contacted to make sure all cats/dogs are spayed/neutered and are up to date on vaccinations including leukemia testing. No declaw is permitted and all cats must be kept indoors. A home visit is performed prior to adoption to meet potential adoptors.

Adoption fee is $75 for all cats/kittens.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
