We are in  need of foster care homes to care for homeless cats or kittens temporarily until we can find new forever homes for them. We provide all medical care, food and supplies for their stay. All you need is a small spare room – we could not save their lives without our foster care homes! Click here to complete our online application and sign up to help us save more lives together!


WISH adoptable pets are transferred from over crowded rescues and shelters in need of help. We work closely with local shelters to provide relief when needed. All of our animals are spay/neutered, vaccinated and dewormed prior to adoption. All of Wish’s available adoptable pets are cared for in loving foster homes or at community partners until they find their new forever families. They get tons of socialization and love, high-quality nutrition and veterinary care when needed. Our kitties are affectionate, healthy little purrmonsters who will bring you tremendous love, joy and laughter for years to come!
