How to become a cat foster for BedForPet Prague?

Fostering cats is an extremely rewarding experience, that requires a responsible approach from a caregiver. At BedForPet Prague all potential fosters have an opportunity to undergo a training to learn everything necessary to take the best care of a cat.
BedForPet Prague provides everything necessary for a cat, including litter boxes, scratchers, tunnels and toys. If a foster decides to cover the expenses on food and litter, it is highly appreciated, but isn’t a requirement.
