Foster guardians interested in choosing a foster kitty to rescue are encouraged to consider the cats listed on the Urgents thread posted daily in the Kitty Devore Rescue Network group forum. It will cite the intake numbers and names of all the Friendly kitties currently in need of rescue at Devore and Big Bear shelters. You can also look through the Most Urgent Friendlies album on the KD public Facebook page and select a kitty in need from the intake photos posted there. If you see a cat that really tugs at your heart, let the Primary Rescue Coordinator know. She will begin a rescue effort to get that cat safely out of the shelter and into your care. This will include working out who will be pulling the cat from the shelter, who will be transporting the cat to you and who, if needed, will be able to temporarily foster him or her in the event you aren’t able to take custody of them immediately.
Sometimes we do have displaced kitties in our foster care and, when this is the case, KD foster guardians are highly encouraged to choose their next foster cat from the displaced kitty list. Three or more cats on the displaced list will result in a self-imposed suspension that halts our ability to take in new cats until the ones we already have in our care have secured new placements. Suspensions and their effects will be discussed later in this document.
