Fostering Shy Felines @ Online Zoom workshop
Mar 21 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Are you a cat lover wanting to foster? We are in need of foster homes in or near Marin who will transform our scared and unsure felines into confident and socialized adoption animals. This free workshop will show you techniques to help socialize shy kittens and cats.  Watching a scared/nervous kitten or cat blossom is extremely gratifying and rewarding. If your home is quiet and your family is patient, you might be the perfect fit to help these felines come out of their shell.
