Fostering is caring for a rescued animal in your own home until a permanent adopter is found. It is the main reason Ottawa Kitten Rescue is able to help hundreds cats and kittens annually — because of our volunteer fosters. Our fosters take in cats/kittens, clean them up, get them healthy, and shower them with love until a furever home is found.

Ottawa Kitten Rescue operates entirely on the time, energy, and dedication of our amazing volunteers. In fact, Ottawa Kitten Rescue couldn’t survive without the help of our volunteers! Want to help? There are always volunteer opportunities and ways you can get involved.
