Seeking Foster Parents!

As a Foster based rescue (we do not have a shelter), we can only save as many as we have foster homes to care for them!

 

Every year, thousands of underage kittens & puppies (too young  for spay or neuter), dogs, and cats enter the shelter system in Northern California and sadly many will be euthanized due to lack of space, lack of funds or lack of shelter infrastructure to properly care for them. Our rescue program seeks to help as many of these precious lives as we can, but we need your help! 

 

We Need Foster Parents to Help:

  • Dog or Cat Mom with Babies

  • Bottle Babies (needing round the clock feedings)

  • Babies eating on their own but not old enough for adoption

  • Cats or Dogs with special needs

  • Adults waiting for forever homes

  • Fospice (Fostering senior or 9+terminally ill cats or dogs)

We are always looking for foster care providers for dogs and cats in all different life stages, from puppies and unweaned kittens to senior dogs and fospice cats. We work hard to place our animals in appropriate foster homes. We emphasize the importance of making the foster situation work for everyone, especially you! We will never knowingly place an animal with you that requires care with which you are uncomfortable. Read the terms and conditionsfill out the Cat Foster Application or Dog Foster Application, and we will contact you shortly to conduct a brief interview

 

If you are not able to foster but are still interested in volunteering with us, please email us. We need the support of the community to do what we do, and we love making new friends! We look forward to working with you!

Foster Parents Needed for Kitten Season 2018

Save lives and play with kittens all summer! Every year, thousands of underage kittens (too young to be spayed or neutered), enter the shelter system in Northern California and sadly many will be euthanized due to lack of space, lack of funds or lack of shelter infrastructure to properly care for them. Our crew is a small but mighty! We are 100% volunteer-run and welcome anyone who sincerely wants to make a difference.

 

Our rescue program seeks to help as many of these precious lives as we can, but we need your help! We are a foster-based rescue, meaning we do not have a dedicated facility. That means we can only save as many animals as we have foster homes! 

 

Types of Fosters

  • Mom with babies

  • Bottle babies that need round-the-clock feedings

  • Babies eating on their own but not old enough for adoption

  • Babies with special needs

  • Adult cats waiting for forever homes

 

What You Provide

  • A safe, cozy inside space - This can be a spare bedroom or bathroom and should be not be accessible by your other animals.

 

  • Food and litter - PETaluma PET Pals will supplement when we can with donations. 

 

  • Socialization for kittens - This means playing and cuddling with cutie pie kitties! It’s hard work but someone has to do it!

 

  • Transportion - To and from vet appointments and adoption events.

 

  • Time - Some kittens only need a couple weeks of care, while others will need a couple months. Let’s talk about what works best for both of us.

 

What PETaluma PET Pals Provides

  • 24 hour support - You can call, email or text the Foster Coordinator any time day or night if you need help or have questions.

 

  • Medical care - We will never hesitate to seek veterinary care, and we have a wonderful veterinary office that takes special care of our babies.

 

  • Adoption events - We have adoption events almost every Saturday. Foster parents can be as active as they want to be in the adoption process.

  • Cat Room & Cat Kennels - We have fun cat room great for a litter of kittens or friendly adult cats.  We also have two individual cat kennels at PetSmart in Petaluma.  Both spaces provide "in the public" viewing and meeting of adoptable cats.

 

  • Advertising - We use FaceBook, PetFinder,  advertise available animals for adoption. If you know someone who is looking for a companion, let us know! Each adoption will go through an adoption application and a candid but friendly interview.

 

  • Peace of Mind - PETaluma PET Pals provides a lifetime commitment to all our animals in the program and will always support our animals in a foster and adoptive homes.
