- What is your adoption process?
We do not have a set fee. We do ask that each adopter makes a donation that is comfortable for them. The cat you adopt from us will be spayed or neutered, be up to date on FRVRCP vaccines and have had Rabies vaccine as age appropriate, will have been combo tested for FeLV and FIV, be flea treated and will have had treatment for intestinal parasites. We provide the original health record to the adopter. We also microchip all cats and LIFETIME register for the adopter. These services would easily cost upwards of $200 at a vet office! We operate completely on donations, so your donation is greatly appreciated!
We do not have a shelter or building. We are an all foster based rescue. This means our rescue cats are housed in the homes of our wonderful foster families! This is a great advantage for adopters because the foster gets to know the cats who live with them and can provide great information on the personality of the cat. Some foster families have other cats, some have dogs, and some have small children. This helps us match our adopters with the best cat for their family.
We DO have 4-8 cats in the Petsmart Adoption Center inside the Taylors Petsmart at 6019 Wade Hampton Boulevard, and 2-4 cats in the Adoption area at Pet Supermarket in McDaniel Village at 1922 Augusta Street in Greenville.
Where can I see your cats available for adoption?
We have adoption events most every weekend! Our usual schedule is: Saturdays from 10-2 at the Simpsonville Petsmart located at 621 Fairview Rd Simpsonville, SC. Sundays from noon-3 we are at the Taylors Petsmart located at 6019 Wade Hampton Blvd Taylors, SC. The most accurate schedule is posted each week on our Facebook page: Foster Paws Rescue
We also have 4-8 cats in the Petsmart Adoption Center inside the Taylors Petsmart at 6019 Wade Hampton Boulevard, and 2-4 cats in the Adoption area at Pet Supermarket in McDaniel Village at 1922 Augusta Street in Greenville. These cats can be seen anytime during store hours and a meet and greet/adoption can be planned by appointment.
Since we are a foster based rescue, you can see many of our available kitties by checking out our Adoptable Cats album on our Foster Paws Rescue Facebook page, and by visiting our PetFinder page here!
Our greatest volunteer need is ALWAYS foster homes for our cats. Fosters are the lifeline of our rescue – without our wonderful fosters, our organization would not exist! Fostering is a great family opportunity and a wonderful way for school age children to get volunteer hours at home. It is also a great way to see if owning a cat is right for your family, while doing something great for the felines in need. Fosters can choose from many foster situations: Mama cat with kittens, Adult cats, Medical needs cats, Orphaned kittens, or Bottle baby kittens. Temporary fosters are also needed to give cats who have been in our adoption center more than 2 weeks a break, or to help fosters who are going out of town. We offer a great, supportive foster program. Inquire if you would like to know more. Our foster application is available here.
We have other volunteer opportunities as well. These vary and are ever changing. Assisting with feeding and cleaning at our adoption center is an ongoing need. We also need help at the adoption events we hold each weekend. Set-up, break down, or becoming a certified Adoption Counselor are adoption event opportunities. Other opportunities are sign/graphic design, fund raising, special event planning. Please let us know what your special skills are or inquire by contacting us.
We are committed to finding a home for every cat. It is our goal to match families and cats with the “right” home for each. We have a simple application that gives us insight into what cat would best fit your family. We follow that with a conversation based counseling session, designed to answer a potential adopters questions and provide helpful information on how to integrate a new cat into your family! Our adoption counseling is done by one of our certified adoption counselors who has been trained to match cats and families, provide information needed and answer questions.
We have certified adoption counselors at every adoption event, so adoptions can happen in the same day! Please allow an hour to an hour and a half to complete the application and counseling session.
We don’t charge a set adoption fee, but we do ask each adopter to make a donation!
