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.

Babs was rescued by a local 'pet detective' who goes by babs and in her honor we also named her rescued kitty 'babs'. Babs was approx. 6mo when she encountered her at a motel/gas station while driving by Arizona and couldn't leave her behind. When she arrived San Diego she asked arwob for help and we were happy to take her in for adoption. She was fostered in a home with 2 parents and 2 teens with no pets and they enjoyed babs while fostering her for a month. We then transferred her to out cat adoption center where we quickly realized she was a little much for the cats at our center in the way she played or harassed the others. We thought perhaps it was the small center and after a month or so was moved to a foster home with other cats and dogs where she currently is fostered and although she is 'safe' and her current foster our president and founder can handle her and her cattitude it would be beneficial for the cats in the home both fosters and personal senior cats if babs found a new long-term foster. Of course, a forever home is the goal and we wish we can find her forever family before her one-year anniversary under ARWOB's care. We recommend a foster to adopt trial for 2-4 weeks before a family/adopter chooses to make a final decision of adopting Babs.

Notes about babs: Ideal home would be adults with no children unless they are savvy around cats and ideally older than 12yrs, NO CATS and dogs should be fine as long as not looking for a dog friend as babs is likely to ignore and just observe the dog.

Babs has a short fuse but very easily observed and anyone who gets to know her will be able to avoid and defuse the situation. For example, her foster can clip her nails without problem and is easy to give oral pills to as well. She is of course easily approached and picked up although some times for example if she has a full bladder she will be moody if she is picked up by the belly since she has excellent litter box usage manners. 

Babs loved to cuddle in the sofa or bed with you and purr like a maniac, she also LOVES loves LOVES toys and enjoys batting around her toys in the floor. She would be a VERY happy single child in the home where she can play at her hearts content. 
Babs is independent who will sleep like a bear sometimes and sometimes she likes to be involved by following you around the house. She likes to explore and observe. She has no interest in bolting out the doors which is great because she would not do well outside EVER as she has NO fear of anything meaning she will not run from a coyote/dog or any predator or car. We say this because some applicants have mentioned perhaps she wants to be an outside cat and the answer is absolutely NOT she will not make it and she is happy as indoor she has never tried to pop screens, or bolt etc. She is a very quiet kitty so no problem about waking you up at 3am.  Low maintenance and easy going who can provide love bites if petted too long or wrong areas but again easily avoidable once you get to know her as her foster mom can do pick her up and pet her zero problems. 

If you are interested in Babs and would like to set up a meet and greet, please fill out an adoption application online at arwob.org
