About Fostering

Fostering is a great way to bring feline friends into your life if you have no previous experience with cats/kittens or if you don’t have the ability to permanently care for them.


Foster parents serve as temporary caretakers for cats and kittens that are looking for their forever homes! Depending on your experience level and interests, you may be bottle feeding neonatal kittens, socializing a feral kitten, medicating an injured rescue, caring for a mama cat and her litter of kittens, interacting with an adult cat that needs its own living space, and much more.

Our foster parents are of many different backgrounds and experience levels, so no matter where you are at in the fostering journey, you’ll find a suitable position here.

Who Should Foster?

COMY is always in need of foster parents as we are rescuing and trapping all year round. We highly encourage you to foster with us if you:

  • Want to care for cats/kittens but do not have a permanent way to do so.

  • Can commit to established routines for feeding, cleaning, playing, and medicating.

  • Can financially support basic necessities and transportation services listed above.

  • Are patient and understand that it may take time to socialize and bond with your placement(s). 

  • Are able to keep in constant contact with rescue leadership through our Slack platform.

  • Pay attention to keen details and can notice differences in physical/behavioral health of your placement(s).

  • Can efficiently contact potential adopters (whose information the Adoption Team will provide you with), promote the adoption of your foster placement(s), and verify applicant information.
