THIS IS NOT AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR A KITTEN - IT IS A PLEA FOR FOSTERS!

A rescue can only save as many animals as they have fosters so in order to save more homeless pets we need more dedicated fosters.

Fostering is an easy thing to do and is so heartwarming to see the eyes of a cat you have just saved. Please consider helping these cats who did not ask to be put in the position of being unwanted...we are their only hope!

If you are interested in fostering but aren't sure if you can here are a few things to consider.

    “I DON’T HAVE THE SPACE” — I used to think this too. Then a cat came along that really, really needed me … and I made the space! All it takes is a small spare bedroom or office, a bathroom, or even a corner where you can set up a playpen cage, which you can borrow from MRFRS! While we do need foster cats to stay separate from your own cats, it doesn’t take much space to do that. And remember, whatever space you have at home is probably more than the kitty has here at the shelter now!

    “I MIGHT GET ATTACHED” — OK, yes, you might. But no matter how difficult it is to bring your kitty back to the shelter, just knowing that you’re helping to save a life should ease any short-term pain. When you take in a foster cat, it gives us room to help other cats that might otherwise be brought to shelters that euthanize for time and space. It also lets us learn more about a cat’s personality than we ever could in a shelter environment, which, in turn, makes the cat much easier to adopt out. Yes, some cats are harder to bring back than others, but be strong! You can do it! (And yes, I’ve kept one foster cat, but not the 60 that followed that first one!)

    “MY OWN CATS WON’T TOLERATE A FOSTER CAT, ESPECIALLY AN ADULT” — If you have a separate room, this shouldn’t be much of a problem. Yes, your cat(s) will know there is another cat in the house, and they may be a little upset about it at first. But chances are they’ll get over it pretty quickly, especially if you make sure you wash your hands after visiting with the foster cat and keep the cats from seeing each other if possible. Feliway Comfort Zone diffusers or Rescue Remedy flower essence can also help. Tell your cats they need to help do their part too! Eventually, they will be totally nonchalant about the whole idea of fostering. My cats no longer even bat an eyelash when a foster cat comes into the house.

    “I CAN’T AFFORD TO TAKE ANOTHER CAT” — This one is easy! You can get all your food and litter from MRFRS if you like, and MRFRS covers all medical expenses associated with foster cats! This policy may vary across adoption groups, so if you buy your own supplies for fosters, save the receipts so you can take a tax deduction!

    “A SHELTER CAT MIGHT GET MY OWN CATS SICK” — If you follow basic health protocols, such as washing your hands between handling cats and wearing an over-shirt when handling the foster cat, you shouldn’t have any problems. A sick cat should be kept in a separate room, and bedding/clothing should be washed with bleach after use. We are also happy to provide you with a bottle of heavy-duty kennel disinfectant for cleaning if you like!

    “SOMEONE ELSE WILL SAY YES. THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER FOSTER HOMES” — They won’t and there aren’t. It’s that simple. We have lots of folks who will take kittens, but very few who will take adults, and even fewer who will take sick, feral, and/or rabies-quarantine cats. Please help us! Kittens are easy for us to place. But our poor adults need help too.

    “I ALREADY HAVE A FOSTER CAT” — All right. Well, this gets you partly off the hook. But wouldn’t your foster kitty like a friend?

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions has a simple yet comprehensive procedure for its adoptions. The first step is to fill out our adoption application which can be found on our website (http://www.rescued-treasures.com). After the application is received a visit will be set up between you and the dog or cat. If the visit goes well, then a vet reference is done to verify the care of your past and present pets. A home visit with the dog is the last step in the process to make sure everyone, including the dog is comfortable. Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions is a non-profit organization. Our only form of funds come from adoption donation fees and donations from the public. We need to charge adoption donation fees in order to recoup some of the vetting done on our rescued pets. Without these donations we would not be able to continue rescuing dogs and cats. Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions also accepts donations of dog and cat supplies so please do not hesitate to contact us regarding them. Current adoption fees can be found at http://www.rescued-treasures.com/adoption-fees/

Go meet their pets

All of Rescued Treasures homeless pets are placed into loving foster homes until their forever home is found. We are working on finding a place to hold adoption events.

More about this rescue

Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions is a pet rescue and adoption run solely by volunteers who have a passion to help society's throwaways. Each year in the United States 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters. While Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions can only make a tiny dent in that number, we have dedicated ourselves to saving as many as we can. Each rescued pet that comes into Rescued Treasures has been saved from either a kill shelter or an owner who could no longer take care of him/her. Rescued Treasures takes the time to get each pet fully vetted to ensure that the pet is healthy. The pet is then placed in a loving and devoted foster home who cares for and trains him/her to become wonderful companions for his/her forever adoptive family. Everyone can help control the number of pets that are euthanized every year. One way is by spaying or neutering their pets. Another way is by fostering or adopting the pets that end up homeless. Rescued Treasures Pet Adoptions is always looking for more dedicated and loving foster homes for its homeless pets. It is one of the most heartwarming things in the world to look in the eyes of a dog, cat, puppy, or kitten that you saved from dying...they will forever be grateful that you cared enough to help them when no one else did.
