The Marin Humane Society is looking for volunteers to foster newborn kittens during the busy kitten season. Foster parents provide a temporary home for neonatal kittens during their first few weeks of life until they are old enough to enter the MHS adoption program. Every year, hundreds of kittens at MHS benefit from time in a foster home.
“Having foster homes readily available during kitten season allows us to maximize the number of animals we can rescue, rehabilitate and rehome,” says Danusia Heilemann, MHS foster care coordinator. “Our volunteers find it incredibly rewarding to know that they are giving these young animals a great start in life.”
Foster parents are responsible for bottle-feeding and socializing newborn kittens and administering medication as needed. The Humane Society furnishes all necessary supplies and provides routine and emergency veterinary care. For more information about becoming a foster care volunteer, call Danusia Heilemann at 415.506.6235.
The Marin Humane Society, charity organizations marin, offers refuge, rehabilitation, and support services to more than 10,000 domestic animals and wildlife each year through a myriad of community services, including adoptions, foster care, behavior and training, humane education, pet assistance for people in need, lost-and-found pet services, low-cost clinics, and more. In addition to our role as non-profit animal shelter, MHS is responsible for upholding county and municipal animal services ordinances through a Joint Powers Agreement contract with the County of Marin.
