Kitten season has arrived & Paws and Prayers is looking for more fosters!

Do you love cats and kittens? Are you looking for a rewarding experience? Or perhaps you have children and would love to get them involved with volunteering? Paws and Prayers is seeking fosters due to the overwhelming amount of kittens coming to the rescue.


Why does Paws and Prayers need kitten fosters?

  • Newborn kittens need additional care with regards to being nursed or bottle-fed, and a foster home can provide this nurturing environment. 
  • A foster home provides the socialization, interaction, and training (i.e. potty training) needed to make the animals more adoptable. Preparation time is provided to the animal by the foster parents to ensure the animal becomes more foster parents to ensure the animal becomes more secure and used to life in a house, while also learning people are kind and food is always available. All of this helps prepare the pet for a new life in a permanent home. 

Where do these animals come from?

Paws and Prayers is very dedicated to the process of pulling animals (dogs and cats) from area pounds every week. The number of animals pulled will depend upon the number of available foster homes. At times, other rescue groups and/or members of the area communities reach out to Paws and Prayers for assistance with strays or families needing to re-home their pets due to unfortunate circumstances such as foreclosures, illness and more.

Are these animals vaccinated/healthy?

Paws and Prayers has a network of veterinarians dedicated to providing spay/neuter and medical care for the animals whenever needed. Animals are vaccinated the day we receive them, and we keep them up-to-date on vaccinations as long as they are in our care. As a precaution, however, we ask that you please ensure your own pets are up-to-date on their vaccinations, and that you keep your foster pets isolated from your own pets for at least the first few days to ensure there are no underlying health issues/concerns. Contact Paws and Prayers to schedule an appointment with a veterinarian immediately should any medical attention be needed for your foster pet.

What costs would I incur as a foster parent?

We only ask for your time. Paws and Prayers will provide all medical care, food, and litter until the kittens are adopted.

How do you find homes for all of these kittens?

Upon receiving the kittens available for adoption, foster parents and/or members of Paws and Prayers will create a name for their foster pet, take pictures, create a description/profile and then post the foster pet up for adoption on our web portal. The foster pet is then displayed on websites including:,, Adoptapet, and Pets911. This provides a lot of exposure for adoption. Foster parents also need to either bring their foster pets to PetSmart events for showing, or make them available for someone else to bring to the event for them. We ask that you get them to two events a month. Many of the kittens need the additional exposure to potential adopters that events can provide. Word of mouth has also proven effective, of course! Many kittens find homes within just a few days – some take a few weeks.

Foster parents review applications submitted by potential adopters interested in their foster pets. They work with senior members of Paws and Prayers to decide whether or not the applicants are a match for their foster pet. The foster family plays a big role in choosing the family best suited for their foster pets. The foster parents can make contact with the interested parties via e-mail, phone and/or in person at a remote location (such as PetSmart). We don’t recommend allowing potential adopters to come to your home, it is better to meet at a PetSmart location. However, if the foster parents would prefer, Paws and Prayers can handle any of these steps for them as well.

About Paws and Prayers

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary mission is to rescue, care for, and find loving homes for homeless cats and dogs. Our secondary goal is to make sure all of these animals are spayed or neutered. It is a big task, but we are ready! Paws and Prayers is based in the Northeast Ohio region. We operate as a non-profit, incorporated organization that functions solely on the efforts of foster homes and adoption volunteers.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting one of our lovely animals, please email us at or email the foster directly, their name is listed in the listing. If you are serious about adopting, you will need to fill out an application. We charge between $150-$300 for dog adoptions at this time and $60-80 for cats (all of our cats are shown at the Chapel HIll PetsMart and can be adopted anytime during their business hours). This goes towards the cost of rescuing and medical expenses, which includes spaying or neutering.
