Kitten Foster Volunteers Needed at Placer SPCA

This summer, about a third of all cats in the care of the Placer SPCA are receiving special attention in volunteer foster homes. By far, the majority of them are kittens too young to be adopted.  Some are so little they have to be bottle-fed.

As more cats come in the door every day, the Placer SPCA is seeking additional help.  Those interested are invited to sign up for an upcoming Foster Care Class on June 24, July 6 or July 15.

Teens can help, too! Teens age 13 to 17 who are seeking to fulfill community service hours over the summer can sign up for a class on Sunday, July 22 from 12:00 to 3:00 pm. A parent must accompany the teen, and must provide oversight during fostering.

“Our foster volunteers make all the difference in the world to the little ones,” said Placer SPCA CEO Leilani Fratis. “And the fostering process is incredibly rewarding.”
