Foster a cat

CWS does not run a shelter. So how do we keep up with the hundreds of cases that crop up each year.

The answer is simple. We help build, educate and support a network of fosters who help the rescuers and our staff with cases in which cats need to be fostered. This usually happens for the cats that are particularly vulnerable due to age or health.

This network of fosters use our adoption board ( and our adoption drives along with other social media platforms to rehome their rescues. Fosters are pivotal in assisting with the welfare of rescued cats.

They make a difference everyday. So can you.

How you can help:

  1. Attend a Fostering 101 Workshop (details are updated approximately 2 months before each workshop) to learn the basics of fostering and to understand if this is a journey you’d like to embark on.
  2. Join our foster network by signing up below and a foster co-ordinator will be in touch with you.

Fostering 101 Workshop

Fostering is a hugely rewarding experience for both humans and our furry friends. Kittens and cats learn to be more sociable and trusting in the safety and warmth of a temporary home while you can enjoy the companionship and love of a grateful kitty!

Kickstarting a Fosterer Registry

Join our foster database when you’re ready to commit to fostering. CWS’s foster co-ordinators will be in touch and will do their best to find you an appropriate fit.

*Please note that the decision to allow a person to foster a rescue lies entirely with the cat’s rescuer in the same way that a person’s decision to foster a rescue lies entirely with that foster. CWS does not compel any person to foster or place a cat. Please also note that CWS does not sponsor the cost of food, litter, medical bills or any other expenses. These are arrangements to be made directly between the rescuer and the foster.

Please note that the details provided in signing up as a foster will be used by CWS’s staff or volunteers in the performance of their job functions.

Supporting Humane First Responders

The Society aims to fundraise to kickstart this support programme. Stay tuned.
