Become a F-OAR-STER

Without temporary homes, many cats and kittens would face additional stress within the shelter environmental and could suffer unnecessary compromise to their health. Even a healthy kitten fares better in a home environment where exposure to germs can be better minimized. In addition, foster parents free up space at the shelter, allowing OAR to save more lives.
