Save an Animal's Life!  Foster Caregivers Needed for Homeless Cats

Chatham Animal Rescue and Education, Inc. (C.A.R.E.) needs volunteers commonly referred to as foster caregivers, to provide quality, temporary, in-home care for homeless kittens and cats from Chatham County until they can be permanently adopted by a loving home.  C.A.R.E. does not have a shelter.  We can only rescue as many animals as we have space for in our volunteer foster caregiver network.  Short term (as brief as a week) and longer-term foster caregivers are needed.  Fostering can be an incredibly rewarding experience; however, it is a common misconception that fostering is easy!

While in the custody of C.A.R.E., the animals must receive affection, food, shelter, sterilization and socialization to be successfully adopted.  C.A.R.E. pays for the cost of approved veterinary care and quality food.  Fostering takes a great deal of time and energy - both emotional and physical. 

To accomplish the goals of our foster program, standard policies and guidelines are in place to create an environment that is beneficial to the animal, the foster home and the organization.  Several of the policies are highlighted below:

?       Each foster caregiver will attend a comprehensive training session after the approval process is complete. 
?      Each new foster caregiver is assigned an experienced mentor and is given a foster handbook with standard procedures and guidelines for animal care, fostering and policies.   

?       Foster caregivers must be able to provide a safe and caring home environment. 
?      Foster caregivers showcase their animals at C.A.R.E. sponsored adoption events and should be able to show foster animals to potential adopters. 

Additional information about Chatham Animal Rescue and Education, Inc. can be found on our website If you would like additional information on becoming a foster caregiver, please contact C.A.R.E. at 919-542-5757 or e-mail Thank you for making a difference by saving an animal's life!
