Thank you for your interest in fostering! Each year, hundreds of animals are given loving places to recover or rest thanks to our foster care volunteers.



“I foster because it works for my lifestyle. I love animals but can’t care for a full time pet due to my schedule—and want to help. This is an easy way to love them, care for them, do something good for the community and send on to happy healthy homes.”


“Please consider fostering a pet if you can. There are so many to love and the rewards are much greater than one would imagine.”


“It is so rewarding. From caring for neonates and bottle feeding, momma cats and their babies, and feral kittens that need socializing, it’s always a different experience. The best is when they are healthy and ready for adoption. It can tug at your heartstrings, but I’m always ready to make room for another kitten crew. The foster team and clinic staff are always supportive and ready to answer questions.”


“Lollypop Farm was amazing with their support. The Veterinary clinic would respond to my calls quickly and provide amazing care for the mama cat and her kittens when needed. The foster coordinators answered all of my questions promptly and supplied me with everything needed.”


“I have enjoyed having a few “web adoptions”. This way, the animal can stay in a home until the perfect home comes along. Fostering is great knowing it’s helping out innocent animals in need.”
