Three criteria to meet
For Les Chats Libres de Colomiers, becoming a foster family is a good test for those who plan to adopt an animal for the long term. It is also a way to do a good deed by giving a second chance to an abandoned cat or one that has not yet had the opportunity to truly socialize with humans.
However, before taking the plunge, candidates must complete three criteria :
- Live around Colomiers to facilitate travel to partner veterinarians.
- Have a secure place (house or apartment) for these animals.
- Have enough time to devote to cats.
If you meet these criteria and wish to welcome one or more cats, it is possible to contact the association by email at [email protected] or by phone on 06 01 59 14 30 or 06 50 72 93 00.
