Foster Application

back to the bbawc website back to the Brooklyn Cat Cafe website

Thank you for your interest in helping our cats!

We are currently only working with fosters living within a 20 minute drive of our Brooklyn Heights location or with the ability to pick up and drop off fosters at the cafe. Other applications will not illicit a response. We are additionally giving preference to fosters willing to work with and socialize shy cats, care for pairs of cats, or medicate if necessary.

If you are interested in our trial-adoption program, where you would provisionally adopt a cat of your choosing with the intention of formally adopting quickly barring obvious insuitability, please fill out an adoption application. In that case, be sure to describe your household and its unique needs in the application so we can best assist you in finding your perfect match.

We are currently only working with fosters in nearby Brooklyn neighborhoods (20 minutes or less drive from our location with normal daytime traffic) UNLESS you can pick up and drop off your fosters at the cafe -- please STOP now if you are not either of those. We are ok with the cats taking Ubers/Lyfts.

Contact Information

Our foster and adoption process is looking very different these days. We require fosters to promptly respond to potential inquiries and schedule phone/video meetings with potential adopters quickly. We also require fosters to take pictures/videos and write descriptions of their foster cats as quickly as possible in order to facilitate the search for their forever home.
