Frontier Animal Society is a shelter and as such, most of the animals that come into our care will remain here with us until they are adopted.  Why then are we looking for foster homes? Please read below for more information about our foster needs.

Fosters are Needed on a Regular Basis for:

  • Orphaned kittens under the age of 3 months
  • Nursing mothers with a litter of kittens
  • Timid cats/kittens who need socialization in a quieter home environment

For the duration of the foster period, Frontier Animal Society will provide all the necessary veterinary care (medication, check-ups, etc.). We will also provide food as well as some basic accessories such as a litter box and transport cage(s).

Fostering is extremely rewarding and it really does save lives. We have limited space at the shelter for young kittens so without our foster famillies, we would be forced to turn many away. Our volunteers will provide support throughout the foster period.

If you are interested in finding out more about our foster program for cats/kittens, please send an email to frontieranimalsociety@gmail.com or call the shelter at 819.876.7785 and our foster coordinator Linda will get back to you.

Ideally, fosters should live within approximately 30 km of our shelter (located near Stanstead, Quebec) or of our vet who is located in Newport Centre Vermont.

For more information about becoming a cat/kitten foster, please send an email to frontieranimalsociety@gmail.com.

Fosters are Needed in Special Situations for:

  • Dogs who are not adapting well to a shelter environment
  • Cats/dogs who are recovering from an injury or surgery

We generally post for special needs fosters on our facebook page on an as needed basis but it is helpful to have names on file so if you would like to be considered, please send an email to frontieranimalsociety@gmail.com and we will add you to our list of potential fosters.
