WE ARE LOOKING FOR FOSTER FAMILIES
What is a foster family?
To be foster family consists in welcoming at home a cat or a kitten, but temporarily. You can choose to take several residents.
When a person becomes host family, he or she undertakes to pay the food (with the exception of the cats which need special food) and the litter as well as the accessories (ex : cat litter …). Veterinary expenses are completely covered by the ARN. On the other hand, the person has to come with the cat to the veterinary clinic which will be indicated by the ARN (if possible).
Cats placed in foster family, are there for indefinite period, ideally until their adoption. Cats in a foster family are often placed for particular cases such as:
What are the advantages to be a foster family?
The obligations of foster families:
The foster family which does not want to keep anymore the animal, has to inform us at least 2 weeks in advance so that we can organize the return in the shelter or the transfer in another family.
From time to time, the cat in a foster family has to come at our adoptions days. The purpose is to give the animal more chances to be seen and adopted. The family has to ensure the transport of the cat for these days, if it is impossible, a transport with a volunteer can be organized.
There can also have home visits at the foster homes by people interested to see and/or to adopt the animal.Note that these visits will always be made together with a volunteer of the ARN and that an authorization from the foster family is necessary.
