You can still make a huge difference in a kitten's life by sponsoring their first 12 weeks of life before they are adoptable at three months of age. Available kittens can be found below. Find the kitten you want to financially foster for a one-time $75 donation.
Your donation will help to cover a portion of their expenses as they grow and thrive in their foster home. Whiskers kittens have wellness visits at six, nine and twelve weeks of age, receive vaccinations, treatment for parasites (de-wormer), and prevention for flea and ticks in addition to being spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption day. This top-notch care comes with a financial weight. Foster families are responsible to cover the costs of food and litter, and that alone can become a big expense. Friends of Madera Animal Shelter recoups only a portion of this expense on adoption day.
By choosing to sponsor a Friends of Madera Animal Shelter kitten, you can help lift a portion of that financial weight. You will be put in contact with your sponsored kitten's foster family. They will provide you with pictures and updates as the kitten reaches different milestones. You will have the option to have your name displayed below your sponsored kitten's picture.
Financially fostering may give you priority for adopting when the kitty is ready. Friends of Madera Animal Shelter does give priority to the physical foster family first, and we do not ask them to make their decision until the kitten is closer to 10 weeks of age. Many kittens posted on the foster page are only 4-6 weeks old, so it is too early to tell.
