Foster Home Policy
Fostering a cat is a significant commitment, so we carefully screen all potential foster homes. We form strong bonds with each cat that comes through our rescue and aim to place them in permanent, loving homes. Given the nature of our work with mostly senior cats, it’s important to understand that each cat will need time to adjust to their foster home. We strive to match each cat’s individual needs and personality with the lifestyle of the person or family fostering them to minimize stress and avoid frequent moves until they are adopted to their forever home.

Please note that Hearts4Paws reserves the right to deny a foster application if we determine the situation is not suitable for the specific cat(s).

As a non-profit, foster-based rescue run entirely by volunteers, we rely on our fosters to socialize, feed, and transport the cat(s) to the vet as needed.

Thank you,

Since most of our cats are seniors, some cats we take in may not do well with other pets.
Seniors are often harder to adopt out and can take a little longer to find a forever home.
Alot of the cats we take in have had limited to no medical care and can sometimes need medication or have a condition we are treating.
