Fostering is so rewarding. You are saving a life and helping provide love and socialization while a Sparkle kitty is waiting to be adopted. Fostering can be short term for as little as a weekend or a week, month, two months, and long term up to a year. We always take our cats back if you have an emergency and can't foster or if you need a break from fostering.
We prefer to place kittens in foster homes that are local to Burlington NC so we can have them attend adoption fairs. If you are unable to transport and attend the fair with the foster kittens/cat, we can arrange transport from your home to the event and return them after the event. Cats and kittens that do well at fairs are encouraged so they can get more exposure and find an adopter more quickly. If a cat or kitten does not do well at a fair and they are easily stressed, we do not make them attend fairs.
For vet care, we have several vets that see our cats: Burlington, Greensboro, Gibsonville, and Mebane, NC.
Sparkle Cat Rescue provides food, litter, supplies, and covers vet care for all fosters.
Each cat in our program is combo tested, up to date on vaccines, spayed/neutered at the appropriate time.
