Share your home & kindness: Be a cat foster parent!

I promise, it's incredibly rewarding and worth the teeny twinge you'll feel at the end! You will have given a cat a loving temporary home that will give it a great head start to be the cat of someone else's dreams.

What fostering entails: Give a cat safe, indoor living space where food, water and litter needs are taken care of while Community Action to Save Strays works with potential adopters. CATSS pays for medical care during fostering. You just work on socializing the animal and letting us know what you learn about its personality. No problem if you have children and other pets.

Be a hero in our community and with cats!
