Other foster scenarios include caring for cats who are recovering from an injury or illness, and providing emergency boarding to assist when someone is temporarily unable to care for their cat due to a crisis (eg. in hospital or homeless). You must be able to separate the foster animals from any pets in your home by keeping them in a separate room. We will provide training and all the supplies you need. 
     
    Feline Foster Volunteers are responsible for helping the cat/kittens in their care thrive until they are ready to be adopted (or returned to their owner in the case of emergency boarding). This will include feeding the animals at least twice a day, possibly more, cleaning litter boxes and socializing the animals. It may also include bottle feeding and administering oral medications. 
     
    Fostering can be undertaken by children under adult supervision, however, the adult must register as the official Feline Foster Volunteer. 
     
    NOTE: As at time of posting we are currently ONLY looking for new Foster Volunteers who are willing to care for nursing females and/or pregnant females with their litters once they’re born, and/or with bottle-fed orphaned kitten litters.

    457437 Concession 8 S Owen Sound, ON N4K 5N8
    We are always looking for volunteers to help out around the kennels. We are open every morning 7 days a week from 8AM - noon. We have a shift of volunteers in every morning to look after the cats and dogs: cleaning, feeding, grooming, walking, laundry, vet runs, administering medications and of course putting dogs out in outdoor runs and walking them. We walk the dogs every day, unless the weather is really, really bad (i.e. too cold or just plain dangerous). We also have evening dog walkers who are paired up for safety reasons (don't want people out at the shelter alone) and they walk dogs or put them out for a stretch in outdoor pens, administer any necessary evening medications and/or extra feeds to cats or dogs and clean up any kennels that have messes.  
     
    We do ask volunteers to try and commit to a period of time on a regular basis (e.g. a particular morning/evening every week or every other week) as it makes it easier for scheduling and also keeps the volunteer familiar to the animals they are caring for. With the dogs, this makes a big difference. We have some dogs that are with us for a while before finding a forever home so we try to have them handled by people they know as much as possible.
