The Iroquois Falls-based Northern Ontario Animal Welfare Society (NOAWS) is now taking in cats from the James Bay Coast, in addition to dogs. And it’s looking for foster homes.
Acting president Tasha Eddy says it currently has 48 cats. They’re all in foster care in the Falls, Cochrane, Matheson and Timmins. The group is always looking to expand its foster network.
“Once the cats are healthy and ready to adopt them, we move them off to other foster homes,” Eddy explains. “So we kind of introduce them to different environments to make sure they’re happy around children or happy around dogs, other cats, so it’s nice to have a variety of homes.”
She says they range in age from nine months to about ten years.
“Everybody we have in our care right now with the exception of a few that are going through medical treatment are spayed, neutered, vaccinated, ready to go,” says Eddy.
Food, litter and vet services for foster cats are provided by NOAWS.
