Become a Foster


The Fat Kitty City Foster Program is designed for animals that are not quite ready for adoption.  This includes kittens and puppies that are too young, animals with injuries that simply need time to recover, and mothers with litters that need to be together until the babies are weaned.

Foster parent volunteers are needed to take care of these animals for a specific amount of time, providing the daily care, feeding, and administration of any needed medicine during that period.  The animal(s) remain the property of Fat Kitty and when the animal(s) are ready for adoption, they are brought back to Fat Kitty for a check-up and placement.  The foster parent(s) have the option of adopting the animal(s) at a discounted rate if they should so choose.

If you think you might be interested in fostering, please take the time to download and complete our Foster Application.

The form can then be faxed to Cindy Minghelli at: 916-939-4120 or emailed to:
