What It Is:
SpayMart’s Kitten Foster Program was created as an adjunct to our adoption program to help us focus on finding great homes for kittens and adolescent cats. Young kittens are especially vulnerable in municipal shelters, and we’re proud to partner with Jefferson SPCA to help reduce their population. The Kitten Foster Program serves the Greater New Orleans area.

How it Works:
The Kitten Foster Program takes in abandoned and neonatal kittens from Jefferson SPCA and, to a lesser extent, the public. SpayMart volunteers foster the kittens until they’re old enough for adoption. Prior to adoption we make sure every kitten is sterilized, vaccinated, micro-chipped, and treated for parasites.
To qualify, kittens must be free-roaming and no more than 4 months of age. Vetting services are offered to the public at reduced prices by participating veterinarians. The program is based on a voucher system that is supervised by the program coordinators.
When they’re ready, the kittens are placed for adoption at our partner Petsmart stores. Many find homes through the efforts of their foster families, as well. We’re proud to say that SpayMart’s Kitten Foster Program finds homes for more than 450 kittens each year!
