By offering your time, love and attention, you prepare your foster cat for adoption into a permanent, loving home.

With the help of our amazing foster families, SAFE Haven for Cats foster program helps hundreds of homeless cats and kittens each year. You don’t have to be a cat expert to become a foster parent. If you’ve got a love of cats, a willingness to learn, and a little extra room in your heart and home, we can help with the rest!

Cats and kittens need a loving short-term foster home for many reasons:

Mom and kittens –
Moms with nursing kittens will need a quiet and safe space to take care of their fragile kittens. These little families need lots of love and attention. Not just for the kittens but also for mom to feel comfortable enough to nurse her kittens until they are big enough to eat on their own.

Kittens –
Kittens 10 weeks and under are too young to be put up for adoption. These kittens are very small and often require more individualized care than they can receive in a shelter environment.

Adults –
Adult cats are a great start to fostering. Some need help correcting a behavior, others are a little timid and need a kind person to help them come out of their shell and then there are some that could just use a break from the shelter.

Hospice Cats –
SAFE Haven for Cats is committed to finding homes for all cats within our care. Some of the cats that come to us have lifelong medical conditions. These cats can be anywhere between 4-17 years old and are looking for a loving home to live out their years. All of their medical care is provided by SAFE Haven’s on staff veterinarian.

SAFE Haven for Cats provides all the supplies, food, litter and training materials you will need. No need to be nervous, we will walk you through every step of fostering and you will be assigned an experienced foster coordinator to answer all of your questions though out your fostering experience.

We also provide all of the medical care for your foster cat/kittens. We ask that you bring your foster kittens to medical appointments every two weeks until they are ready to be returned to the shelter to be altered and adopted. You could have your foster for a few weeks or several months.

At this time SAFE Haven for Cats does not have any foster to adopt opportunities. Our foster families are committed to helping us save lives year after year. If you are interested in adopting and have questions please feel free to email us at or visit our Meet the Cats Page.

Fostering can be the most rewarding and fulfilling thing a true cat lover will ever do to support cats! It makes a huge impact on our community and it is a great way to save lives. It is very rewarding to see your foster cats and kittens get adopted into a loving home.
