Foster Program

Too young to survive at a shelter, baby kittens and puppies can only be saved with a foster parent.

In May 2010, N.O.A.H. officially started a Foster Program to save the hundreds of underage kittens and puppies that end up at shelters every year. When we found out that a partner shelter had to euthanize 886 baby kittens in 2009, the N.O.A.H. Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers jumped at the chance to help.

Far too often springtime results in unplanned litters of kittens and puppies. Sadly, many of these litters are taken to animal shelters before they are old enough to care for themselves. Their frail little bodies lack a healthy immune system so time is of essence in saving their lives. When we get the phone call about some orphans, finding a transporter volunteer and foster parent quickly is key to the survival of the babies. So far so good!! Since we started in May 2010, we have saved over 3,000 animals! That's a lot of bottle feeding! Luckily, several of the litters came with a Mom and they do most of the work!

If you'd like to help this great program here are some things you can do:

Become a Foster Care Volunteer! Becoming a Foster Parent requires attending a Volunteer Orientation and meeting with a Foster Coordinator (Click here for more information about orientations & trainings). We let you tell us what you are comfortable fosteringThere are several levels of care you can provide ranging from bottle feeding to providing a small room for a mom with babies for a couple of weeks. It's a GREAT experience for kids!

Be a Transporter Volunteer! If you have a car and are available to run to Everett, Mt. Vernon or even Tacoma we need your help! Perhaps you work in the Seattle area and could pick up babies on your way home from work? Transporter volunteers are vital!
