Grassroots Animal Rescue is looking for pet lovers who are willing to join our team as a cat foster parent for homeless adult cats and kittens. We are entirely foster-based, with no shelter space. Our foster homes are in Chicago, the Chicago suburbs, and the Kankakee area.
About our Fostering Process:
- Each foster home takes on their foster cats from intake into the program through adoption.
- All the foster cats stay in the foster home until adoption. This could be 3-4 weeks, a few months, or several months.
- Foster homes bring their foster cat to the vet for wellness assessments or medical treatment if sick.
- Foster homes bring the cats or kittens to adoption events at local stores we partner with to show our animals.
- Foster homes process their own adoptions (with guidance from the rest of the group, as needed.)
Grassroots will reimburse for pet supplies, and will pay for the foster cat's veterinary care.
