Our lives have been touched forever by the experiences we’ve had while doing foster care. Although we foster some puppies and dogs, we specialize in kittens and cats with a special focus on neonate kittens as young as newborns and critical care kittens. We also had mom cats deliver their babies in the comfort of our home. One of them delivered her babies right beside Colleen on the couch practically on her lap as she didn't want to leave her side during her labor.
We’ve also had very sick kittens that required lots of hands-on care and critical care support to get them back to being healthy, then get them ready for adoption. Fostering animals can be a pretty intense job, but it is so rewarding.
We are proud to admit that we are Foster Failures! A joke to describe a foster animal that eventually becomes a permanent family pet. Two of our cats Oreo & Harvey who are brothers came to us from the shelter and were hand-raised by us from just five days old. (see picture above) We woke up to feed them every two hours around the clock day and night! We also adopted our other cat Link into our home from a litter of five kittens we fostered. And our last foster fail was Nico, a beautiful Northern Manitoba puppy we fostered together with his brother. Our household has four cats in total. Their names are Jagger, Link, Oreo & Harvey.
We have learned so much along this foster parent journey and absolutely love doing it! Our goal is to get more people involved and excited about foster care.
