Abandoned Outside Roice-Hurst Humane Society in Grand Junction Colorado

Thursday morning, April 28, started out a little rough for a bunch of kittens. Imagine being abandoned outside a shelter.

What's needed now are Foster Homes.

How to Foster a Pet in Grand Junction Colorado

What is involved with fostering a kitten? According to a Facebook post from Roice-Hurst Humane Society, "All you need is a spare room or bathroom and lots of love to give! We provide the supplies and vet care."

Wait a minute! That's it? They provide supplies and vet care? Yes, that is the case. I've fostered a kitten before, and it was awesome. All that was needed was:

  • Safe space, namely a bathroom
  • Time and attention
  • and.... as I recall, that was it.

How To Sign Up to be a Foster Family

If you visit Roice-Hurst Humane Society's official webpage, you'll find the Foster Care Program application. The page states, " Foster care is a temporary arrangement in which a shelter animal is cared for in a volunteer’s home prior to adoption. Our foster program allows dogs and cats to receive specialized care beyond what we can provide in the shelter."

The application is very basic, doesn't ask anything too personal, and requires only moments to complete.

Imagine being a young kitten abandoned outside a gate. This is a rough way to start a life. Each of these kittens has a long life ahead of them. Please help them get back on the right foot. If you can't foster, please consider donating.
