Foster

Thank you for you interest in becoming a Little Paws Foster Carer. Our foster carers are a team of wonderful compassionate cat lovers who open their homes and provide a cat or kitten with a second chance at a safe and happy life!

Who needs fostering?

As Little Paws does not have a shelter, all cats or kittens that come into our care are looked after directly by our foster carers. We see a range of cats and kittens coming into care; we are always seeking carers for mummas cats and their kittens, adult cats, kittens (both weaned and unweaned) as well as pregnant mummas.

Requirements of a foster carer?

As a foster carer you are generously asked to provide:

  • a loving, caring, safe environment for you foster cats or kittens to live. All our kittens and cats are to be kept indoors (or in a secure outdoor enclosure) at all times;
  • food and litter; and
  • transport to vet appointments.

Fostering Period

As your foster cat or kitten stays with you till they find their ‘furrever’ home, some animals may only be with you a week or two whilst others may need long term care.

If you would like to open your home and heart and apply to become a Little Paws foster carer please complete the Foster Carer Application Form which can be found by clicking on the underlined link.

  1. Hi There.
    I am on the Gold Coast. Is this too far or do you have Vets etc in this area? Brisbane and Logan a little far.
    Thank you

  2. Hi

    I work full time and therefore am not home a lot during the week. I love cats and would love to get one but would feel bad leaving them to go to work. What are your thoughts on this.

    • Hi Susan
      Most of our foster carers work full time. This is why each foster carer looks after a minimum of 2 kittens so they have company. 🙂
      Please complete an application form, then our foster carer co-ordinator can chat to you further and answer any other questions you have.
      Thank you for your interest.

  3. Hello, I have found a kitten that is the sweetest little boy. He’s very small and fail.
    I really need someone to foster him as I work standard office hours and he would be locked up inside during this heat and I feel awful. I already have pets and can’t take on anymore. He’s can he held and is happily purring.
    I am in western Sydney

  4. Hello can you bring a cat in to be fostered? As i am in between housing at the moment and its going to cost me $400 a month to keep him at a cattery and it will be for a few months.. sorry im not sure if this is what you provide but im just not too sure what to do because i obviously want him back when i am settled

    • Hi Monique,

      I am sorry but this is not a service we provide. Have you tried asking friends or family if they are able to help?

      Regards
      Alexandra

    • Hi Monique , I would love to look after your boy for a few months. I have a beautiful cat run that runs off my bedroom so he would not get out at all although he may think he is. while I don’t have any other animals myself there are other animals on the property.

  5. How soon can I foster? Also, if I end up bonding with a kitty and don’t want to give it up to potential adoptors when the time comes, can I adopt it at that point?

    • Hi Lisa

      If you are renting you can foster. You will need to provide written evidence from your landlord and the body corporate that you are authorised to have kittens or cats in the apartment.

      Please complete the foster application form and our co-ordinator can then discuss your situation in more detail.

      Thank you
      LPKR
