Cat Adoption Team has a rockin’ kitten foster program—and we want you to have one too!
Our unique kitten foster program is nationally recognized as a lifesaving model that’s worth repeating. So we put all of our resources down on paper just for you. We call it Fostering 4 Rock Stars because we know you’ll feel like a rock star when your foster program is saving more lives!
