Fostering 4 Rock Stars Apprenticeship

Hello fellow cat lovers,

Cat Adoption Team is hosting three (!) week-long training sessions on our nationally-recognized foster program. Come to the Portland area for a week of learning, fun, and all things kittens. We will walk you through all aspects of our kitten foster program, and give you all of our materials including documents and our trainings. We will set you up for a successful kitten season.

This apprenticeship is good for all levels (no formal program yet to a program actively in place). Our kitten foster model increases lifesaving and staff and foster satisfaction while keeping costs and demands on staff low. Sessions will be in January and February giving you enough time to get everything in place before kitten season is in full swing.

And, the bonus is that since this is a Maddie's Fund apprenticeship, there is $1500 to cover travel and accommodations. Anything leftover you can use for your foster program. Pretty sweet!

If you are interested in applying, please take a look at this link first to learn more. It will say that our application cycle is currently closed, but we still have some spaces left to fill. If you are interested in applying please email me directly at
