Have you considered becoming a kitten foster family? At CatzRUs, Pretoria, our rescue capacity depends on our number of volunteers.
Wanted
It takes a special kind of animal-lover to love fully with the object of letting go ... in order to help the next needy fur-family. As an organisation we rescue and re-home between 300 and 500 cats and kittens each year in the Pretoria area.

Some Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. What will it cost us financially?
A. CatzRUs asks foster families to cover the basic costs of food and cat litter. All veterinary costs are covered by our adoption fee and fund-raising efforts (we have a network of vets who recognise the good work we do and who offer their services to CatzRUs pro bono).
Q. What does fostering entail??
A. It's making yourself available to take needy kittens into your home to raise them, love them and re-home them at 13 weeks. We use our WhatsApp group as the main means of communication. You volunteer as you are able - one litter at a time. You will need a heart for animals, a spare room, transport for vet visits, a cat carrier and a desire to make a difference.
Q. Will my own animals be compromised?
A. We recommend keeping kittens separate from family pets until we can be sure they are healthy. Dogs are safe from cat diseases, but we are cautious about mixing cats before knowing how healthy they are. That being said, most of our foster families have their own cats, and we've learned lots about how to foster wisely, and will be glad to share advice with you.
Q. How on earth do you give away those gorgeous babies!??
A. Regular viewing of KittenLady's videos is recommended! Google "Kitten Lady Foster Fail". We regularly remind one another that the goal of fostering is goodbye.
Q. How will I know what to do?
A. We have a WhatsApp group with many experienced foster moms. No question is too silly!
Q. What is the next step if I am interested in fostering?
A. Request our foster documents. Read them carefully. Talk to y
