Foster Care Program

Our foster care providers are pre-screened volunteers who take cats and/or kittens into their homes after they have had their initial medical evaluation. Since kittens are extremely fragile, they do best under constant supervision in a home environment. Feral kittens have additional socialization needs in order for the general public to deem them adoptable.

MWHS provides food and medical care and the foster family provides time, love and socialization until the cats and kittens will be happy, healthy additions to their new families when they are adopted. Foster care providers also provide transportation to vet appointments and adoption meet-and-greets at the shelter.

Join our foster care program today! If you live in the MetroWest area and can provide a foster home, please download the foster home application form and return it to the shelter.

Additional information about providing foster care is available on our Fostering FAQ.
