FosterCat is a Rescue and Placement Agency for Homeless Cats and Kittens

We operate only in Allegheny and certain surrounding counties of Pittsburgh, PA.

We do not provide boarding services or temporary care for owned pets.

If you need boarding services or temporary care for your pet, we suggest asking friends or family members to care for the cat(s) temporarily. Check your local yellow pages for boarding services in your area. Try contacting local shelters to see if any of their employees/volunteers provide boarding services in their homes to make a little extra money. If you live near a university, you might check to see if you can find a grad student who lives in a pet friendly apartment, who would care for your cat(s) for the pleasure of their company while they are away at school. We have had a number of grad students who have fostered for us over the years.

Commercial boarding services are also available. We can recommend PawSpa Resort, a local boarding and grooming facility that also helps sponsor FosterCat events.
