Love Kittens But Can’t Take On the Commitment?

Jul 05, 2014 07:31AM ● By Brenna McGowan

This summer, nearly one third of all cats in the care of the Placer SPCA will require special care in volunteer foster homes. In most cases, they are kittens that are too young to be adopted – and some so young that they need to be bottle-fed.

Experience the joy of having a kitten without the cost and time commitment of owning one. The Placer SPCA has already received more than 350 kittens. That number is expected to increase dramatically in the months leading up to October, when kitten season tends to slow down.

“Our foster volunteers make all the difference in the world to these little ones,” says Leilani Fratis, Placer SPCA CEO. “The fostering process is incredibly rewarding.”

The Placer SPCA offers free foster classes to anyone interesting in becoming a foster parent. If you would like to attend their upcoming class, please register at

WHEN:  Friday, July 11 from 2 – 4 p.m.
