Foster a Rescue
Fostering is FREE and FUN!
We not only provide you with everything you need to take care of one of our rescues, but the experience is SO fulfilling. By placing one animal into a foster home, you allow us to save another. We are always in need of foster parents.

Meet Oregano, Pepper and Sage!
These 3 kittens are the last available and still available kittos of mamá cat, Rosemary (also still available). Oh this little family has had the bad luck of getting sterilized and, right after, got a cold, and, after that, showed signs of ringworm, which means this little family was held back from adoption for a couple of months. They have been cleared since September and are now ready to go home! Hopefully, we can get them Home before the Holiday Season starts.
11/3: Foster Update... Pepper and Oregano's moms have this to say about them: Pepper: Pepper is a very friendly kitty and loves to meet and make new friends. He is food crazy and loves treats and wet food. He loves to cuddle and play with his brother, Oregano. Both his foster moms are working from home right now and he loves to curl up on our laps during work. He is a very curious kitty and is not shy to explore the space that he lives in. He loves trash, so it would be best practice to keep your trash in a place that he cannot get into. He is great at protecting his foster moms from bugs and other creepy crawlies too! He loves soft blankets and curling up in bed. Both Pepper and his brother are very sleepy during the day and very active at night. He loves to play tag and chase his brother around the house.
Oregano is very shy and timid at first, but don’t let that first impression fool you! Once Oregano is accustomed to his surroundings and warms up to you, he is very friendly and cuddly. He will make an effort to make sure you know he is there and will swat at you or rub up against your leg until you pet him. He also loves curling up in your lap and purring. He loves to knead on soft blankets and is well known for his gentle love bites. Oregano loves to explore and can get almost anywhere, no matter how small the space or high up the shelf. Oregano’s favorite toy is a fluffy ball, he likes to run around with it in his mouth and play fetch. His favorite thing to do is curl up and cuddle with his foster mom at bedtime.
A heads up.... these kitties love to get into trash and have manners that can be improved regarding food! Their foster moms have had to start leaving them in their kennel or in another room when they are eating because they do not take no for an answer when it comes to human food! The two of them are eating and pooping normally and their fosters have cat proofed their apartment with these kitties because they like to get into everything. (which is normal for active, curious kittens and these two teens are still in the kitten stage, loving and enjoying play and life in general.
Please check out Rosemary's bio as well. These young teens who are all in the 6-7lb range and half way through being full grown are complete kittens, but sturdy kittens who aren't fragile age/size. They are great with other cats and dogs as well as people. They are all uper friendly and social with excellent litter box manners. They are healthy and ready to go home. We do allow foster to adopt trials for these guys as well. The best family for them will be one with another cat in the home or who will adopt then in pairs either with a sibling (the boys Oregano and Pepper are currently fostered together , but their sister can be adopted with one of the boys as well since they loved their sister. Sage can be a princess and tomboy girl as well; she is currently fostered along with Gala, another young tuxedo girl, or any other Arwob kitty. So, a home with a feline friend is a must. Dogs are a bonus as are children, but not needed :)
All 3 are very social with people, dogs and cats, everyone with their own quirky personalities too, So, if you already have a cat at home looking for a friend we are pretty sure these kits will be well matched for any age feline. Ask us about meeting them to adopt the same day or the ability to foster to adopt for a couple of weeks.
If you'd like to meet, one, two or all 3 of Rosemary's babies please submit an application to adopt online at arwob.org
