What It's Like to Foster Kittens

Fostering tiny lives makes a huge difference. Right now, shelters and rescues all over the country desperately need foster homes to temporarily care for kittens until they’re old enough to be adopted.

Fostering is an incredibly heartwarming experience that makes a world of difference and saves lives. Best Friends (and lots of other shelters) will support you every step of the way, providing food, supplies, advice, and medical care while you foster.

If you haven’t started fostering kittens yet, now’s the perfect time! These precious babies need you today. Visit bestfriends.org/foster to learn how you can save tiny lives in your community.

Be our Best Friend

Best Friends Animal Society is working with you to save the lives of cats and dogs all across the country, giving pets second chances and happy homes.

Just a few short years ago, cats and dogs were killed in staggering numbers in this country simply because shelters didn't have the community support or the resources to save their lives. That number is now less that half a million per year, but there's still work to do to ensure a bright future for every dog and cat in America.

Best Friends operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals and is committed to saving the lives of homeless pets by working with shelters and passionate people like you. Together, we will bring the whole country to no-kill in 2025. Together, we will Save Them All.
