Indy Animal Care Services Hosts Event to Recruit Cat Foster Families

INDIANAPOLIS – Have you ever wanted to try having a cat with no full-time commitment, or just want to help stray animals in your neighborhood?

If so, Indianapolis Animal Care Services is hosting an event next week that might interest you.

Next Saturday, the shelter is hosting a kitten shower in an effort to recruit more foster families. It takes place to prepare for the shelter’s next “kitten season”, or months when it sees an increase in the number of cats.

“Foster homes not only help keep kittens healthy, but they also help with socialization, so kittens are well prepared for their new homes once they can be adopted,” said the refuge in a press release.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the shelter’s foster program and the general responsibilities of a foster home. Current host families will also be there to share their experiences.

You could even win a prize if you attend. Anyone who goes there will receive a door prize ticket to participate in the giveaways, the prizes of which include restaurant gift cards, a cat grooming package, a cat hammock made by a foster family. Those who bring donations can earn more entries.

For those who wish to attend but cannot, the shelter welcomes donations of supplies, including miracle pacifiers, pet bottles, wet and dry kitten food, and pine or paper litter. .

The event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. on April 2 at the shelter, located at 2600 S. Harding St.
