Foster Kittens for the Humane Society

The Humane Society of Stark County needs loving individuals to become Foster Parents for kittens. With so many orphaned kittens it is overwhelming for the shelter to care for these little babies. Please consider becoming a Foster Parent.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO BECOME A KITTEN FOSTER PARENT:

  1. You need to have the TIME to feed and care for the kittens. Fostering kittens can require a commitment of up to six weeks, although in some instances, the commitment may be shorter.
  2. You need to have the SPACE that is isolated from possible injury from other pets and that is a safe environment for the kittens to safely explore as they get older. While very young kittens may spend most of their time in a cage, as the kittens get older, they are going to insist on more space to venture and play.
  3. You need to have PATIENCE to look after and feed the kittens. Depending on their ages, kittens may need to be bottle fed which will require several feedings per day. As they grow, you’ll introduce them to wet and, eventually solid food.

In addition to matching you with foster kittens, the Humane Society will provide formula, bottles, food, litter, a litter box, blankets and a cage.

If you are interested in fostering, please contact the Humane Society and we'll connect you with a seasoned Foster Parent who can give you specifc information, meet and talk with you and guide you through the process.
