Fostering Saves Lives!
What is fostering?
Fostering is a commitment you make to take care of an animal until they are adopted.
That can take days, weeks, months or longer. It is incredibly rewarding, fun and it is also really hard work.
Animals in a new environment take time to warm up and acclimate to their new home.
Just like humans, they each have their own personality. Many of them have had it rough before settling in with you. It is not always instant puppy kisses and kitten cuddles.
Fostering is a lot of patience, cleaning, feeding, sometimes medicating and did we mention cleaning?
At the end of the experience almost all of our fosters continue to foster.
The goodbyes are hard, sometimes fosters end up being the adopters ("foster fail" is the technical term) but at the end of it all fostering saves lives and is a very rewarding experience.
We rely heavily on individuals who will take our rescues into their home and nurture them while we work on finding a forever home for the pet.
All medical and supplies are paid for and provided, if provided, while we work on finding a forever home for your foster.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SUPPLIES FOR MY FOSTER?
We are able to provide basic supplies for your foster, if you need that. Being a small rescue group, we do appreciate anything that you can provide for them, as well.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR VET CARE FOR MY FOSTER?
Puppy Kitty NY City is responsible for all vet care while you are fostering the cat. Please contact a representative when taking the cat to the vet, so we are all on the same page and can plan funding.
AM I ABLE TO ADOPT AFTER I FOSTER?
Yes! We ask that you fill out an adoption application, but we are happy to entertain this should you fall in love.
WHERE DO THE CATS/KITTENS COME FROM?
Our cats and kittens are most often living on the streets before entering a foster home, but some have come from varying backgrounds. Feel free to ask!
