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 Figaro (aka Figgy)!

Figaro was rescued off the streets in early February. She is such a very sweet, affectionate, playful young teen.Her best friend is Berlioz (aka Bear) and they enjoy spending time together. This sweet girl will make a wonderful family member  and cannot wait to find her forever home! She has been at our cat adoption center in Clairemont and her different foster homes, sharing her digs along with her BFF, Berlioz (nicknamed Bear). 

Latest updates:

Figgy (her nickname) loves to be carried  like a baby and purr and rest her head on your shoulder. She is a very small and very cute cat. She is very playful especially with her best friend, Berlioz (aka Bear). She loves to cuddle, sleep & play, as well as attack with Bear. She does very well with dogs as soon as she knows they won’t hurt her. She and Bear have been together in a foster home as well as sharing digs together at our cat adoption center. She would do best going to a home with Berlioz or, if that is not possible, to a home with another cat.

Fig is the sweetest cat; she loves to rub on your legs and beg you for rubs. She loves attention, from humans or other kitties. Once you start petting her she doesn’t stop purring. Although she’s not a huge lap cat on her own, once you pick her up, she does like to be cuddled. Fig loves her foster brothers, Monty (our cat) and her best friend Berlioz (we call him Bear.) All three play for hours running up and down the stairs, playing with toys (especially feather toys) and sneak attacking each other. Fig loves food but she’s not super motivated if she’s in the middle of playing. She would do best going to a home with Bear or another cat who matches her personality.

Would you like to meet  this sweet mannered, affectionate young girl, or if looking for a pair, along with her very best buddy, Berlioz (Bear)? First, submit a cat adoption application online for review. A volunteer will call you to finish processing your application and, if approved to adopt, we can schedule an actual meet and greet to interact with this boy. 

Meet and greets can happen pretty quickly as long as applicants can gather all the items from our adoption check list and have them ready. ARWOB does NOT place HOLDS on rescues, so please, only submit an application to adopt if you are READY to adopt within 2-7 days of submitting the application.  Typically, the same day of meet and greet (assuming interaction goes well) is the same day of adoption to avoid multiple meetings.

IF a team member doesn't contact you within 72hrs of submitting an application, please follow up with us via email or phone call, otherwise, it may be overseen.  Submit an application for Figaro today at arwob.org
