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

Pierre needs a foster home to provide enrichment and socialization to help him prepare to find the right home.  He is diabetic and needs to have medication administered to him.  Pierre is also positive for the fungal infection, ringworm and will need to be in a pet-free and child-free home.

How to Foster Pierre:

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

Pierre is available for foster pick-up through the Lincoln Park Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago.

Pierre's Story

Bonjour! Meet Pierre, a mature gentleman who would love to find a quiet, relaxing home where he can spend his golden years. Looking for someone to keep your lap warm? You’re in luck, because he absolutely love to sit on laps and snuggle with his human companions!  His favorite activities also include lounging and playing with wand toys, and using his scratching post like a champ.

Pierre has been diagnosed with diabetes, and requires insulin injections twice daily after mealtime. Thankfully, Pierre loves to eat, and he takes his shots very well, so please don’t let his special needs scare you away! 

Although he may be a little older, Pierre is a laid-back, total sweetheart who has tons of love to give. Being around other animals can be stressful for him, so he'd prefer to be the only pet in his forever home. As long as he can hang out and snuggle with his human family members, he'll be a happy guy. Pierre will make a faithful and loving companion to anyone who is willing to give me a chance.  Won’t you consider fostering or adopting this senior kitty?  

  • Cuddles! I love a good lap to curl up on.
  • Did someone say ‘treat’? I’ll take them all!
  • I’m a people person! 
  • Keep me company! I prefer homebodies who are often at home.
  • I love chasing toy mice and feather toys
  • I need an experienced adopter.  

Dislikes 

  • I prefer quiet environments that aren’t crowded

 

 

 

 

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.
