Urgent Plea for Foster Homes
capacity to save feline lives is directly dependant on the number
of foster homes available. Consider opening your heart and home to
a homeless cat; become a foster home volunteer. The experience is
quite rewarding and a wonderful way to teach children responsibility
toward pets. The commitment could vary from a couple of weeks to several
months depending upon your availability. You provide the food, litter
and love, 4Paws pays for pre-authorized vet care.

Call 703-715-6369 (MEOW) to find out how you can help 4Paws give
one more homeless cat a better life; a life filled with love,
warmth and security. You will be rewarded many times over… every
time your foster cat purrs in your ear or snuggles up against your
neck. Your greatest reward, however, will be when you hand over
your foster cat to her new family.
Of course it will be difficult to say goodbye, having cared for
your foster cat from the beginning of her rescue. You will never
forget the look of terror on her face as you gently pulled her
from the carrier. Later that evening, you witnessed the dramatic
change that a simple brushing and hearty meal could make in her
appearance and confidence. Over time, you saw her get stronger
and more trusting.
In your heart, you will know that it is time to let her go... time
for your foster cat to have a family of her own to love and who loves
her. You will be comforted to know that her new family has been carefully
screened by a 4Paws volunteer to ensure that she will be well cared
for and loved throughout her life. And you will know that you have
done a generous and beautiful thing by providing a temporary home
for your foster cat, but then letting her go in order to make space
for the next homeless cat waiting to escape the cold and dangerous
streets or a shelter's death row.
