ALPENA, Mich. — The shelter plans to open its building by the end of the year. In the meantime, it’s still searching for fosters, who take care of animals waiting for adoption.
Shelter president Lauren Kadrich said different cats have different needs based on their age and personality.
“Some people like to foster bottle babies. That is quite a commitment because they need round-the-clock feedings, every hour to two hours. So people who do that are people who are at home all day. People who work during the day can definitely foster mothers with litters of kittens.”
People with longer shifts can also foster older cats who can be fairly independent.
Kadrich said the shelter covers all the major expenses, such as litter, food, and vet costs.
