Every spring, the Montreal SPCA takes in many unweaned orphaned kittens requiring specialized ongoing care from a foster caregiver. To prepare for this period, the SPCA is recruiting individuals that are willing and able to accommodate between one and four kittens at their home for a minimum of four weeks.
When you foster kittens, all the necessary supplies (food, baby bottles, etc.) to care for neonatal kittens will be provided, including support and advising from our team.
What you need to know before signing up:
- This training session is for people interested in fostering newborn kittens from the Montreal SPCA.
- Newborns require intensive care and must be bottle-fed every three to four hours during the first weeks.
- If other animals live in your home, they must be sterilized, and their vaccines must be up-to-date. However, the kitten must be kept in isolation in a closed room until it has reached at least five weeks of age.
- Foster families need to come to the Montreal SPCA every two weeks to have the kittens vaccinated.
We invite people who are interested in the program to register for one of the mandatory training sessions offered by the Montreal SPCA (maximum of 2 people per registration, one of whom must be 18 years of age or over).
