Fostering is essential to what we do at Action for Animals. We want to find our cats and kittens their forever homes, but first we bring them into our loving foster homes to prepare them.
Fosters provide the place, love, and time to get the cat or kitten ready for adoption. Action for Animals provides for the cat with food, litter, a litter pan, a cage. All cats will be spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, and provided with medical care and a microchip on us.
To be a foster with us we require that other animals in your home are current with vaccines and do not have any contagious illnesses. Kittens and a nursing mother will need a safe space such as a room or large cage to live until the kittens are old enough to eat solid food.
We also ask fosters to be exclusive to Action for Animals. If other animal rescue organizations use the same foster, we can have a difficult time sorting things out if a contagious illness begins to spread, for instance.
Our fosters have been instrumental in the happy and healthy future Action for Animals cats. We are grateful for their time and loving care. And, we are always happy to welcome new fosters into our AFA family.
If you want to get involved with foster our cats, the first step is to fill out this foster form and we will get back to you soon.
Generally one cat is with you between 2 to 4 months, but it depends on the cat. Some are very shy and need time to adjust to new surroundings and time to recover from their spay/neuter surgery.
AFA relies on partners and donations. You are welcome to donate the cost of food and litter for your fosters. If needed, AFA will provide those for you. We can also loan a litter box and other supplies. AFA will cover the cost of spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, flea treatment, and medical treatment.
Yes, the foster approval process includes a home visit. We want to be familiar with the space the foster cat will be placed in, as well as the people and other animals that are in the household.
We appreciate that you may be new to foster and would like to guide you in every step of the way. We have a lot of information to share and will help you with any questions you may have. Support is only a phone call away.
You are welcome to foster as often as you like. We will keep in touch with you about your availability.
We partner with the PetSmart in Muncie to house our adoptable cats and kittens. During their stay, these cats need volunteers to care for them everyday. These volunteers clean out the cages, disinfect all surfaces, freshen the litter boxes, provide fresh food and water, and most importantly, socialize with the cats.
All of the supplies are provided and each volunteer goes through onsite training before expected to care for the cats on their own. Most volunteers come once a week for about an hour or two.
