Foster Category: Socialization

Type of Foster Home: 
Blanda needs an Advanced Foster home. 

Blanda is diabetic and looking for a home where the foster would feel comfortable administering his insulin shots. He is a major cuddle bug and loves to nuzzle up to anyone who will offer a lap! One of his favorite pass times is being held as if he were a baby. He has quick feet and is a world class escape artist so be mindful when coming and going that he does not sneak outside.

With a proper introduction Blanda may do well with another cat. He has been known to snuggle up and groom the other cat that was in the foster home. Blanda loves to dance and play with his foster family; his perfect way to unwind is to crawl into your lap for a cuddle.

How to Foster Blanda:

New fosters can take the first step by learning about fostering and completing the Foster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can email to schedule a pickup appointment.

Blanda is available for foster pick-up through our Lincoln Park adoption center- 1997 N. Clybourn Ave.

Why Foster?

There are many animals that need us today. Each foster family allow us to save more homeless pets by opening their home to a pet or litter in need of love and care for a few weeks. When we are able to send a pet or litter to foster, it frees up space in our Medical Center to bring in more pets in need.

Last year, our foster families took in 3,467 pets. Some needed a peaceful place to recover from illness or injury. Puppies and kittens just needed a bit of time in a home environment with good socialization so they could grow big enough to have their spay/neuter surgery before adoption. Other pets needed a calm and relaxing break from the stress of shelter life.

Consider joining them in lifesaving. Sign up to become a foster today.
