Kitten Rescue Team Foster Program
Our Foster Program, appropriately named The Kitten Rescue Team, is comprised of trained volunteers that foster young kittens that have been found during our TNR efforts. All kittens under the age of eight weeks will be trapped, given medical treatment to ensure their health, socialized, and then placed for adoption into a loving home.
Members are required to go through training offered by the Coalition and our partner organizations, and must be pre-approved as a foster before taking kittens home to care for them.
Our Foster Program consists of two different types of fostering:
On Deck Fosters
Fosters that are ready, trained, and prepared to take young kittens from the field. We will make every effort to have kittens go straight to one of our partner veterinary hospitals for their initial exam and age appropriate care. However, on deck fosters should be able to accept kittens straight from the field, and be prepared with the supplies needed and a quarantine area for kittens.
Fosters will receive kittens from On Deck Fosters and will see them through to adoption. They are required to go through training and to take foster kittens to adoption events held throughout Loudoun County. Options to also have potential adopters come to your home (if you choose) to meet and fall in love with your foster kittens, or meet at a pre-arranged visit at a partner vet hospital.
The goal is to remove all young kittens from the field as soon as they are safely able to leave their mothers. If the mothers are no longer there to care for them, we will remove the kittens and place them in our foster program.
