Foster Care

tim thomasTim Thomas, enjoying his stay in foster care.When an animal arrives at PALS who is not quite ready for adoption - or if we don't currently have space in our Adoption Center - PALS relies on the kindess of our foster care volunteers to provide them with a safe place to stay. These volunteers open their homes to kittens needing time to grow, pregnant or nursing mothers, cats needing special attention, or those simply waiting until there is an open cage in the Adoption Center.
