Foster or Adopt a Feline through JerseyCats
One of the few good stories out of 2020 is the uptick in pet adoptions, as people crave companionship while they’re stuck at home. One particularly popular alternative to adoption is fostering a pet—an arrangement that offers an animal’s love, affection and gratitude without the lifetime emotional and financial commitments. Fostering opportunities are plentiful at JerseyCats, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of homeless cats and kittens through rescue and adoption.
JerseyCats rescues felines from unsafe or undesirable situations, predominantly in Jersey City, Hoboken Union City and Weehawken. Because it doesn’t have a shelter or facility of its own, the organization can’t take owner surrenders. Instead it relies entirely on volunteers who provide foster homes for felines until they’re adopted out.
Anyone interested in fostering or adopting a cat or kitten can visit the JerseyCats website to see and read about adoptable animals. They can also arrange for a virtual meet and greet to help them choose the feline that will best fit into their household, temporarily or permanently.
