Orman's Story

We are looking for a Core Foster home. If you've had a pet or fostered before, you have all the skills you need to be a Core Foster. 

Orman is a handsome 4 year old tabby cat being treated for an upper respiratory infection, a cold which is only contagious to other cats, and is positive for FIV, which is only transmitted via deep bite wounds. He can go to a foster home with resident cats if they are kept separate.

How to Foster: 

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

You will need to pick-up Orman 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.
