Humane Society Kitten

Are you willing to open your heart and home?

We do not currently have a shelter. However, we do have a wonderful network of foster homes, and are always looking for more! Are you interested in fostering? The Humane Society of Livingston County is seeking foster parents for homeless cats and kittens in our county. HSLC will provide to you:

  • Food
  • A litter pan and cat litter
  • A crate for transporting
  • Flea medication
  • Veterinary visits for necessary shots or illness
  • Spaying/neutering the cat you foster

All you need to provide is loving care on a temporary basis until HSLC can find a permanent home for the cat or kitten. Fill out a HSLC Foster Form now.

Did you know?

Unspayed female cats can begin reproducing at 6 months of age. A mature cat can have 3 litters with an average of 12 kittens per year. Even taking into consideration that not all the kittens survive, at 7 years the result is 2,905 kittens produced by one cat and her offspring, and 49,000 at 10 years. That is why it is so critical to get your pets spayed or neutered.

We offer a voucher program to our members that can be used towards the cost of spaying or neutering. The application form can be downloaded here.
