Fosters are the magic ingredient.

As a foster, you will care for a rescued cat in your home until a permanent adopter has been found. Home foster care is needed for pregnant cats, cats with kittens, orphaned kittens, abandoned, injured, ill, and/or elderly cats. Medical care and necessary supplies for each kitty are provided by the rescue.

The Kitten’s Cradle is located in the Twin Cities metro area. Fostering for us is best if you live in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and surrounding suburbs. Foster care volunteers play a vital role in the ability to save all of The Kitten’s Cradle cats and kittens. You don’t need to be a kitty expert, just be willing to provide a safe environment, follow simple protocols, and love animals. We will help you succeed.

Applications are currently closed for fostering. We are busy onboarding new helpers. Inquire about our other volunteer opportunities at
