Foster Application

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

Thank you for your interest in helping cats during this time!

We are currently only working with fosters living within a 20 minute drive of our Brooklyn Heights location or with access to a vehicle, other applications will not be answered. We are additionally giving preference to fosters willing to work with and socialize shy cats or care for pairs of cats.

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

We are currently only working with fosters in nearby Brooklyn neighborhoods (20 minutes or less drive from Downtown Brooklyn) UNLESS you have a car and can transport -- please STOP now if you are not either of those. We will not be responding to any applications that are too far.

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.

Tell us what kind of cat(s) you are interested in fostering!

At this time, we are only able to provide starter supplies. Although not required, we appreciate a donation to cover these costs.


For each reference, please provide name, relationship to adopter, EMAIL ADDRESS and phone number. Please note references should not be family members or roommates.

And Finally...

We also require a home visit as part of the foster application process. Generally we bring the animal at a time that is convenient, do the brief home visit and have you sign the foster agreement.
