Type of Foster Home: 

Peabody needs an Advanced Foster home. He requires special skills and time commitments from his foster parents. Peabody needs structured playtime and lots of environmental enrichment, so a foster family that has dealt with high energy cats.

Peabody is looking for an adults only, experienced foster home. He is has lots of energy and needs someone who can spend plenty of time throughout the day to help him expel some of that energy. In a previous foster he did well with the playful female cat in the home.

Peabody is very playful and loves a great session of play using a wand toy. He has such a sweet, goofy personality that has made him a fast favorite between the volunteers here at LPAC! He may be okay with other high energy, playful cats, as long as there is a slow and proper introduction.

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.

Peabody is available for foster pick-up through our Adoption Center at 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.
