AOH is in constant need of foster homes for cats and kittens while they await adoption. Foster care can be as short as an overnight stay after surgery to a longer term commitment that lasts until the animal gets adopted. AOH will be happy to work with you to meet your needs and match the best foster pet to your household. Typically foster care lasts for 1 to 3 months but may last longer.

AOH will provide all pre-approved medical care and support for you while the cat is in your home. We will provide food, litter and other supplies needed to help ensure fostering is a great experience for you and the pet. You provide training, socialization and lots of love. We try to keep communication open at all times so we help in emergencies.

We love when our foster families bring their foster pets to adoption days. The foster family’s input is very valuable in deciding whether the foster cat is the right choice for prospective adopters.
