P.A.W.S: Looking for foster families

By Carolyn Marsh | Feb 25, 2014

Darling Arlo, a 6-month-old golden retriever mix, is a playful pup who loves people, playing with his toys, taking walks, riding in the car and cuddling. He is very comfortable with other dogs and children, but he hasn’t had a lot of interactions with cats and is mildly — sometimes very — curious about them. He is happiest being with people who pay him the attention he deserves!

Our wonderful Hugo is a very sweet cat who would love to be in a home of his own. He is an enthusiastic leg warmer, and he loves to be petted and brushed. He likes being around other cats and would be especially happy with an owner who will play with him.

Kitten session isn’t right around the corner — it’s here! We have three pregnant cats already, and we’re looking for a foster home for one of them. Patches is a sweet calico who would love to have her babies in a home. If you are interested in being a foster family, please let us know. We have a feeling a lot more pregnant cats will be arriving soon!

Fostering a pregnant cat can be a two- to four-month commitment, and we don’t always know the vaccination history of the pregnant cats that come here, so if you have other cats, it would be best to keep the expectant mother in a separate room. We can provide you with a play cage, towels, litter and kitten food, and the promise that fostering a passel of kittens can be the experience of a lifetime.

Tops on our wish list for this week — in fact, the ONLY thing on it — is helping us get ready for kittens. We need Purina Kitten Chow, KMR (milk replacement for kittens) and non-clumping cat litter. And of course foster families.

Maybe spring isn’t in the air quite yet, but the promise is there. Stop by the shelter at 146 Camden St. in Rockport and and get to know our mothers-to-be and all our other residents. We’ll be surprised if you don’t fall in love with one or more of our sweethearts. We’re open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, our phone number is 236-8702 and pawsadoption.org is never closed! And thank you, as always, for your caring and support.
