Love cats but cannot afford to have one? Perhaps fostering is for you.
Carol’s Ferals Foster Program
We have many cats who cannot be housed with our other cats because they are on special diets, need medications, have attitude problems or are FIV positive. Most people are afraid to adopt these very special cats, so we have created a Foster Program for them.
Foster parents agree to keep these very special cats inside only, provide proper food and medication, and of course love – in other words treat them as their own.
What are the Advantages to Fostering?
- Love – The cats will provide fosters the companionship and love only cats can provide.
- Low Cost – Carol’s Ferals will supply all food, litter and medical needs if the foster chooses not to.
- Rewarding – Knowing you are making a difference in a cat’s life can give you a warm, fuzzy feeling.
What are the Disadvantages to Fostering?
- Inconvenience – If fosters decide to have Carol’s Ferals pay for the food and litter; they must go to the facility to pick them up.
- Rules – If a medical issue occurs, Carol must be notified. All treatment will be through the Animal Hospital of Lowell, and all medicine must be picked up at the facility.
- Adoption – If someone decides to adopt the cat, the cat must be relinquished to the new owner. However, before finalizing an adoption, fosters will be given the opportunity to adopt.
