Lincoln Park

Foster Category: Socialization

Type of Foster Home: 

Yanni needs an Advanced Foster home. They require special skills and time commitments from their foster parents. They need lots of structured playtime and lots of environmental enrichment, so a foster family that has dealt with very shy, fearful cats are preferred. 

Yanni is looking for a foster home to give him a break from the shelter. He is FIV+ so a foster who can help monitor his overall health is needed. He is a bit shy at first, but will warm up and cuddle up with you after some time. In a previous foster he was noted to greet the foster at the door when they came home every day.

How to Foster Yanni:

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

Yanni 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.
