Change the life of an under-age kitten!
Every summer, the Bucks County SPCA sees overwhelming numbers of kittens brought in by people who have either found them or can’t keep them. Help give these kittens a jump-start to a healthy life. Some of these kittens are brought in with their mothers, who in a different environment are able to continue raising them.
We currently have a few select foster homes that do a terrific job, and now we’re looking to expand the number of available fosters so that no kitten under 8 weeks has to be raised at the shelter.
What is expected of BCSPCA Foster homes?
A calm nurturing environment where the kittens can flourish and become well socialized.
How do I become a Foster Parent?
The prospective foster homes need to submit a Foster Application and be interviewed in person at the Bucks County SPCA. Upon approval there may an in home inspection. Applications can be mailed to Attn: Foster Parent, Bucks County SPCA, P.O. Box 277, Lahaska, Pa 18931.
Will I incur any expenses as a Foster Parent?
The BCSPCA will assume all pre-approved expenses incurred. All cats and kittens will need to come to the BCSPCA at scheduled intervals for routine vaccines and worming. Whenever possible, cats and kittens will be tested for feline leukemia before being fostered.
What happens once my foster kittens are old enough to get adopted?
The BCSPCA will place all cats and kittens in new homes after they have been spayed or neutered. Foster homes may send any of their potential adopters to the BCSPCA for consideration.
