It's raining kittens and kittens and DuPage County Animal Care and Control is in need of foster homes!
Each summer hundreds of kittens come through the doors of the shelter. These kittens can be anywhere from a few days old to a few months old.
Small kittens need to go to a foster home where they can be socialized and cared for until they are old enough to return to the shelter for adoption. DCACC welcomes fosters of all experience levels (even first timers!); however, they are especially in need of fosters for the more time intensive kittens that need bottle feeding or extra socialization.
What you need: a space for the kittens (an extra room or bathroom will do), time and dedication. DCACC will provide all supplies, medical care and advice and support along the way. To learn more about our Foster Care program, please visit our website.
