Lincoln Park

Foster Category: Socialization

Type of Foster Home: 
Ulysses needs an Advanced Foster home. He requires special skills and time commitments from their foster parents. Ulysses needs structured playtime and lots of environmental enrichment, so a foster family that has dealt with high energy cats is preferred.

Ulysses is looking for an experienced, adults only foster home. He may do well with another playful, high energy cat.

Ulysses is a sweet cat that needs frequent play sessions to help him burn off some energy. He loves to swat and grab at wand toys so be sure to stock up! Having another playful cat around may help with him getting some of his energy out and help!

How to Foster Ulysses:

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.

Ulysses 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.
