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.
Tiger Lily and Smokey were found hanging out in a backyard in East County. The homeowners were feeding them and noticed they were social and friendly so they reached out to local rescues for help. We are not sure if they are sisters but they do enjoy each others company. They were initially shy when meeting new people, but became much more social with our volunteers when they were initially in our cat adoption center. Smokey is playful and both she and Tiger Lily are very sweet and enjoy sitting on laps! They have bcome best friends and you can see a picture of them together on a cat tree.
Tiger Lily and Smokey are NOT considered a bonded pair who have to be adoted together altough they do enjoy being friends and spending time with each other.. They can co-exist with other cats or be in a home as a solo cat as long as the humans give them plenty of love and affection. They have been in a foster home with dogs and a home with a respectuful dog who likes cats should be fine since they tend to be timid with new environments. They also have not met any young children but, given their sweet and affectionate personalities, we expect they would love respectful kids who can shower them with love and affection.
Please submit an adoption application online at arwob.org if you would like to adopt either or both of these sweet gals!
