Over the past ten years, Heavenly Paws Shelter has placed thousands of cats in permanent, loving homes. Heavenly Paws doesn’t operate as a true stand-alone shelter, so volunteer foster homes are the heart of our ability to save lives. Our foster families are the vital bridge between a rescued cats unfortunate situation into the loving, forever home that awaits them. Fostering an animal is one of the most rewarding experiences imaginable and there is always a kitty who needs you.

Time Commitment

The length of commitment depends on the reason for the foster need. Some kitties just need to gain a little weight and others might need socialization or time to recover from a medical procedure. We also need foster parents for newborn kittens who need to be weaned and be 8 weeks of age before adoption. Fostering can last anywhere between one week to a few months.

We always work with you to find a foster that best fits your interest and schedule.

What Heavenly Paws Shelter Provides

From the time we rescue a pet until the day it leaves foster care, Heavenly Paws assumes responsibility for ALL expenses related to your foster’s care. We pay all veterinary expenses, including all vaccinations, deworming, spaying/neutering, routine medication, emergency veterinary visits, food, litter and all of the necessary supplies to care for your foster. And of course, while the cat is in your care, we work diligently to quickly provide a carefully screened, permanent home for the kitty you’ve so graciously taken in. Our fosters become our babies, so we make sure they get a caring, loving, forever home.

Satellite Locations

Heavenly Paws is very fortunate to have several satellite pet stores, which gives our cats the necessary exposure they need when they are ready to be adopted. Once your foster is ready for adoption, we can place your foster in any of the following locations and find them their forever home in no time.
