Adopt + Foster









Our Adoptions program provides foster and forever homes for cats and kittens found on the streets through TNR, impounded at the shelter, or from hotline requests for support when cats are faced with being taken to shelters or abandonment. Many cats from our other programs feed into our adoptions program. Each cat and kitten receives veterinary care (spay/neuter, vaccines, testing, check-ups, microchips) until a permanent, loving home is secured.

In 2020, we matched almost 1,800 cats and kittens with community members to provide forever homes.

Fostering is temporarily housing an animal while they wait to get adopted. Whether your home is small or large, you live alone or have other animals, we have cats and kittens who need your help and will thrive under your care. We rescue nearly two thousand cats and kittens every year and rely on our fosters to help us care for them until they’re adopted. The more fosters we have, the more lives we can save.

If you’ve never had a cat or don’t know if your existing animals will get along with a new foster friend, you have nothing to worry about. Our team will guide you every step of the way. Our goal is to provide you with the resources and support to make sure everything goes smoothly for you and the cats/kittens in your care.

Stray Cat Alliance is based in Los Angeles, California. We save cats and kittens from all over L.A. and Orange County with a strong focus on South Los Angeles. If you don’t live in the area, we highly recommend finding a rescue organization near you!

Fostering with Stray Cat Alliance is a very rewarding experience. You are helping to save a life and find your foster cat or kitten their forever home! We cover any medical costs that may occur. We do ask that our fosters provide food, litter, and other basic supplies. Depending on the kittens/cats you choose, you may be required to bring them in for regular vaccinations and vet appointments.

Don’t forget to check out our Trello board to see cats needing a foster family!
