I am a Foster Coordinator for the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA.) We are a non-profit that rescues kittens and cats and places them into foster homes in preparation for adoption.
I would like to reach out to members of your organization to find individuals interested in fostering cats with us. The reason I’m contacting DeafBC directly is we currently have several deaf cats in our system for whom we are trying to locate foster home. Deaf cats are unusually vocal and loud which is causing difficulties as most of our fosters cannot tolerate the noise. These cats are extremely friendly and litter-trained, their only complication is they just don’t know how loud they are. I’ve attached some pictures of the kitties in question.
Fosters could potentially adopt their kitties, or they could continue fostering with us after adoption. We cover all expenses related to food and medical bills while the kitties are in foster and a Foster Coordinator (like myself) is assigned to answer questions or address issues that may arise. The Foster would need to provide a safe home, take care of the cat’s day-to-day care, socialization, and photos and updates for our adoptions website.
Please let me know if you will be able to assist me in my search for foster homes or if there’s a better contact I should reach out to. If you have any questions feel free to email or call me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
VOKRA TIP OF THE DAY: Did you know that plastic bowls can cause acne in kitties? Using glass, metal, or ceramic water and food dishes and frequent washing will keep your foster cats photogenic!
