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 Hazelnut and her babies: Cashew, Pecan, and Pistachio!!

Let us tell you a little about this beautiful Nutty family:

Mama cat, Hazelnut, is a BEAUTIFUL short hair grey tabby who was rescued from the Devore shelter along with her litter of 3 kittens (she had 4 babies, but, sadly, one kitten didn't make it and passed away before we were able to pull the family from the shelter). They were red listed and to be euthanized in a couple of days for lack of space. Their foster had learned about their plea for help from a post on social media and she drove to exit the family to foster herself as long as approved which we did. She drove up from San Diego to Devore (2hr drive one way) to pick them up and we ended up exiting 20 kitties total who were also in dire need of help! 

We realized all 20 kitties had horrible upper respiratory infections and, hence, they were all quarantined and treated. After a couple of weeks of medications, they are now AMAZING strong, healthy and SUCH LOVELY friendly and sweet family!!

Hazelnut herself if likely a teenager or very young adult at 1yr and she is VERY sweet, social and such a great cat!!

Hazelnut shares her foster room with her babies and the following are notes from her foster mom: 

The Nutty family is not yet sterilized for lack of surgery availability BUT we have made premade (prescheduled) sterilization surgeries to which adopters MUST agree to drive to and from the veterinary hospital on the day of their neuter or spay surgery. 
Spay and Neuter surgery dates are:
 Boys- THURSDAY JUNE 30th in the North Park area 92104
 Girls (hazelnut mom and daughter Cashew) - MONDAY JULY 11th in the North Park area 92104
**Sterilizations are already included with the adoption fee. These dates are NOT debatable. Please do not submit an application to adopt if you are not able to make these surgery appointments.
For this reason, we are looking for LOCAL adopters within 30 miles of 92104 who can make the drive. 

Summary of adoption process: 
Submit an application online @ ARWOB.org, contact us via email within 3 days to check on the status of your application IF you have not heard from one of our volunteers first.
Once a phone interview is scheduled (typically 10-15min chat) we can finish processing the adoption or foster application and hopefully move forward to set up a meet and greet in 92117 area

Typically, adopted or foster kitties go home the same day as the meeting.
If the adoption application is not approved you will receive an email with notification.
Adoptions can take 2-7 days from the time we receive application to the day kitty goes home.
It's really dependent on applicants' ability to provide the rescue group with the items needed to finalize an adoption. For example - if you rent, we recommend you have already received written approval from your landlord stating you may have a cat or multiple as that would be a determining factor on how FAST an adoption occurs. 

We DO NOT place Holds on rescues- IF you are not ready to adopt within the week you submit the application we recommend waiting to submit application until you are ready, as that rescue may no longer be available when you are ready. 

WE DO NOT DO SAME DAY ADOPTIONS - IF you are looking for a NOW/TODAY adoption, don't waste your time submitting an application online and we recommend you visit your local city shelter to find a new family member.
