Foster Care

To foster means to open your home temporarily to provide love and care while they wait to be adopted. BCCCC provides everything else: support, vet care,food and supplies. (You can donate litter and cat food, which is greatly appreciated).

Foster parents care for either cats or kittens by providing a loving environment and daily care consisting of food, water, litter box, medical care, toys and all the other comforts of home. Most important is the time spent socializing the cat so that s/he becomes accustomed to people and indoor life. Fostering is a very rewarding experience as you are helping a needy cat prepare for the new family life every animal deserves. The cost of foster care does not fall solely on the foster parent, many costs are provided for by BCCC.
