Did you know that Siamese are among the most popular and well known
breed of purebred cat? And it follows that this is the most commonly
found purebred in shelters and animals controls in the country. We are
dedicated to saving as many of these Siamese as we can, but without
adequate foster homes to place these cats in, our hands are sadly tied.
All it takes is a spare bathroom, bedroom, laundry room — whatever
space you can spare. We provide the veterinary care, you provide love,
toys, food, and litter. Many times we hear "Oh, I could never foster, I
would want to keep them all". Initially, this does happen very
frequently, particularly when you watch a scared and standoffish
shelter cat blossom into a purring, affectionate companion who
cherishes every bit of attention you lavish on him. But you can only
comfortably adopt a finite number of cats, whereas by fostering, you
can help save countless more. Due to our stringent screening process,
you are assured that “your” foster cat will be adopted into a permanent
loving household that will continue to care for him as you have. And
there is always another needy cat that would be so grateful for the
opportunity to move into your spare room. We recognize that the foster
families know these cats the best, and that is why we rely heavily on
the comments and input from you when we are evaluating potential homes.
If interested, please download a foster application and either print out and fill in the blanks to mail it to us, or fill in the blanks on your computer and email it to us.|
Perhaps long term fostering isn’t for you. Well, we also need short
term fosters, where we can place cats temporarily (i.e. usually 2 weeks
or less) while a more permanent foster spot opens up. In addition, we
are always looking for people to assist us with long distance
transports, both in and out of state. You could be part of the very
rewarding time when a long distance adopter and adoptee are united.
Perhaps you are geographically located at quite a distance from us. We
urgently need contacts and volunteers across the state who might be
willing to pull a cat form a shelter on short notice, perhaps assist in
moving him closer to us, or holding on to him a day or so until we can
make transport arrangements. Publicity is another area ripe for
volunteers — we need people to know that we as a resource exists!
Hanging fliers, passing out business cards at your local vets office,
pet supply store, neighborhood grocery store, etc will help increase
our exposure and help get the word out. We can always use people who
are willing to learn to process applications — it is a wonderful way to
meet some fellow meezer lovers and also help our cause. Last but not
least, we need some folks who are interested in fund raising… several
projects are in the planning stages but we need you to make them happen.
