Type of Foster Home: 
Della needs a Advanced Foster home. S/He requires special skills and time commitments from his/her foster parents. We will help match you with a mentor if you’re looking to broaden your foster experience, but you need experience with serious medical conditions, intensive care or behavior modification.

Della needs a foster home to provide palliative care, love, and comfort which she deserves at the end of his life. She has tested positive for FeLV and will require a cat free home.  Della is looking for an experienced cat foster parent who can work on socializing her.  She is quite shy and scared in the shelter environment.

How to Foster Della:

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.

Della is available for foster pick-up through the Medical Center at 3516 W. 26th Street.

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.
