We are always in need of good foster families for our cats, kittens and the occasional dog. We do not have a shelter, and can only rescue more animals if good foster families step forward to help us. The average length of foster care is about a month (give or take). If you would like to take a mom cat with her kittens, the commitment is about 4 months, although we don't obligate our foster families to keep the animals the entire four months. Hopefully they are adopted at our adoption events!
This is also an ideal opportunity for you to see if you'd like to have a furry family member in your life. We can arrange a 'foster to adopt' situation for you. (Not obligatory, but many people like to 'test the waters' to see if they want to make the long-term commitment.)
If you are interested in helping us, please visit our website: www.bbawc.org, click on foster care and please complete the foster application.
Thank you!!! We appreciate that you can help us. (BTW, ALL of our animals are spayed/neutered, up to date on their shots, negative for FIV and FELV and parasite free i.e. no fleas and no ringworm cats).
If you have questions about URGENT FOSTER FAMILIES WANTED please contact Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, Inc.
Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, Inc.
Our rescue group was formed in December 2007, but all our Board Members have had extensive experience rescuing and working with abandoned animals. We often work with other rescue organizations to find appropriate and safe foster and adoptive homes for our pet clients. We regularly go to areas with abandoned animals and collect them. The animals are taken to a licensed veterinarian examined, treated and spayed or neutered. Every effort is made to work with the animal and our foster and adoptive families to find a suitable forever home.
For those animals who are truly wild and feral, we release the animal in a safe and secure location after it has recovered from its medical treatment. We also work with certified wildlife rehabilitators to rescue injured and orphaned wildlife. Our organization is focused on improving the welfare of the abandoned animals in need of help in Brooklyn. In furthering that goal, our resources are focused on the animals.
Aside from a few minimal overhead costs such as our website and phone services, our entire budget is spent on animal care such as medical and food costs.
