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 Babs!

UPDATE 2-15-21:  We are happy to offer a 1-2 week foster-to-adopt trail for someone who meets Babs at the cat adoption center and feels that they didn’t quite make a connection with her.  Since some cats are stressed and do not show well at the CAC, a foster-to-adopt trial would give an adopter a chance to see how Babs reacts once she is in a more calm setting at home.  We do think she would be perfectly happy as the ONLY cat in the home.  Since she arrived at the CAC, our volunteers have been making a habit of taking Babs out of her kennel and letting her have the room by herself for awhile so that she can play and enjoy the human socialization.  Perhaps in a more spacious environment in a calm home with just one other cat, Babs might be just fine.  But for now we think Babs would probably be happy as an only cat.  We know that she is very people and kid friendly and socially interactive, but the chances are that she may not show great at the center because she is nervous/a little upset about all the other cat scents. Given a home of her own, without the stress of other cats, will bring her back to her easy going nature.

Babs was with a foster family before coming to the cat adoption center.  This is what her foster family had this to say about her:

"We (2 adults and 2 children-11/13 years old) fostered Babs for about 2months and she was a very easygoing and sweet cat. She adjusted immediately to our home- running, curious and playing right off the bat. She may appear irritable in the center environment but at our home we did not see this side of her personality. We never heard her hiss. She might nibble or scratch a bit during playtime, but would not attack or be aggressive. She slept on our bed every night and got comfortable enough where she would crawl under the covers with us to sleep which we did not mind. She was always around us when she was awake. During the day she loved to take her naps on the beds or in her special basket and towards the end of her stay with us she would sleep next to one of us on the couch. She would let us pick her up for short periods of time and would gracefully wiggle her way out of it when she wanted to be let down. You can pet any part of her body without complaint from her. She is the type of kitty I would choose for a long-term companion cat knowing full well that she will continue to warm up over time."

If you think Babs sounds like that loving, friendly, outgoing, and playful kitty you are looking for, please submit an online adoption application at arwob.org. You might be the forever family to make her dreams come true!
