Emo


 
 
 
 
 
Emo was found on Buena Vista St. in early June and taken to the Burbank Animal Shelter. He was sad and didn’t like people (and had the most adorable spitty hiss whenever a person tried to get near him). He was fostered with a family with kids. Within three days, he snuggled and gave his first rusty purr. Nowadays, Emo is a confirmed cuddler. He has an easy purr and a devastatingly handsome glare. He is playful and loves his peacock feather toy, but he’s also a snoozy little guy who loves dozing near his people. Emo is a homegrown Burbankian just like Tim Burton, and he would be a gothic, elegant, loving addition to a family with or without kids. He is fine around other cats. Please reach out to brockwaymetcalf@me.com if you are interested in adopting this magnificent beastie.
 

 
 



Chase


 
 
 
 
 
Hi! My name is Chase. As you can see, I’m a dashing orange tabby with white markings. My foster mom says I am very handsome, which I totally agree, sweet and calm. I love to play and cuddle as well. To learn more about me, please contact my foster mom, Irene, at marisolorozco2181@gmail.com
 



Summer


 
 
 
 
 
Hi! My name is Summer. My brother, Winter, and I got to go to our foster homer together! We love to play with each other as well as other kitties. I’m told it takes me a while to warm up to others, but after that, I’m all love! You have other cats, dogs, children? Not a problem! I get along well with all of them! I would love to find a home together with my brother, but I’ll do fine with other companions, or just alone.
 
Please contact my foster mom, Joseline, if you would like to know more about me! 917-379-7905 or Joselinegomez@hotmail.com
 



Winter


 
 
 
 
 
Hi! My name is Winter. My sister, Summer, and I got to go to our foster homer together! We love to play with each other as you can imagine. I’m told I am very nice, extremely playful and quite loving for my breed. You see, I am an Abyssinian mix. I’ll play all day and cuddle all night. Perhaps the other mix is the dominant gene! If you have other cats, dogs, or children, It’s not a problem! I get along well with all of them! I would love to find a home together with my sister, but I’ll do fine with other companions, or just alone.
 
Please contact my foster mom, Joseline, if you would like to know more about me! 917-379-7905 or Joselinegomez@hotmail.com



Tiger


 
 
 
 
 
Hi, I’m Tiger! I’m a big goofy male orange tabby kitten with big ears. (My dad says I’ll grow into them eventually!) I love to run and play and zip around the apartment so much that my foster dad sometimes calls me fireball. I’m a super playful guy, love to bat at and chase toys, and *love* to play with my littermates. I also get along great with my foster dad’s adult cats. I’m super athletic, love to climb the cat tree, and one day I *will* catch that red laser dot!

When it’s bedtime, I love to curl up with my siblings, or with my foster dad on the bed. I’m very social and would love to be adopted to a home with another cat (or two).  I’d think I’d be ok as a single cat if my new family gives me lots of attention.   Come meet me and see how awesome a little cat I am! Contact my dad, Chris chris@thevbas.org
 



Boots


 
 
 
 
 
Hi, my name is Boots! I’m a calico female with striking markings. My foster dad says I’m a real cutie, and I think he’s right! I love to zoom around, play with my siblings, Misty and Tiger, and bat around my toys as well. I’m a very curious kitten and have the sweetest personality, but I can be a little shy. I’m getting braver every day and if you give me just a little time, I’ll come up to you and purr up a storm when you scratch my shoulders. My dad says with a little attention from my new owner I’ll wind up being a full-time lap cat! (I’m already sneaking into his bed at night when he’s sleeping, and I sit on his lap at breakfast and dinner time.) If you can be a little patient with me, I guarantee I’ll wind up loving you forever.

I also love other cats! I’m friends with the two adult cats in my foster home and I’m especially fond of my brother Tiger and sister Misty. I’d be super happy if you adopted me with one of my siblings, but I’ll also be happy going to a home that already has another cat. I’ll be happiest when I have a friend!

So, what are you waiting for? Contact my foster dad Chris chris@thevbas.org and come meet me!



Misty


 
 
 
 
 
Hi, my name is Misty. I’m a super sweet dilute grey and orange female Tabby/Calico kitten. I like toys, I like other cats and I like to follow my foster dad around like a shadow! I will sing for my supper, and I play and goof around with my siblings Tiger and Boots like the happy go-lucky kitten that I am! I need a little bit of time to warm up around new people, but once I get to know you I’ll purr up a storm. I also like to snuggle on the bed at night.

I’m very fond of my littermates Tiger and Boots, and I’d be happy if you adopted two of us together. I’ll also be happy if I go to a home with another cat. (I love to follow my foster dad’s cat around!) I’ll be happy as long as I have a furry friend.

If you’re looking for a special new best friend, adopt me! Contact my foster dad Chris chris@thevbas.org today!’



Eyebrows


 
 
 
 
 
Hi everyone! My name is Eyebrows because I have some serious eyebrows going on. So far, I haven’t found a single thing in life to be afraid of. I love grumpy old cats, hyperactive chihuahuas, and every person who walks through the door. I like to play with everything from actual cat toys to… well, anything you leave on the floor! I also love to cuddle all the time and will happily perch under your chin and nap while you watch TV on the couch. I’m very social so I would prefer to have someone to play with during the day, and if you’re looking for two companions, my brother Toupee would be a great choice to keep me company! If you’d like to meet me, please contact my foster mom at dana.leigh.brand@gmail.com or stop by a kitten fair!



Lauren


 
 
 
 
 
Hi! My name is Lauren and I come from a litter of ten brothers and sisters! My foster mom is caring for me and my two brothers, Gregory and Humphrey. I may be the only girl, but I hold my own pretty darned well! In fact, I can be a bit of an instigator which often leads to a wrestling showdown! I am also very curious, and I love to explore. Once I have my heart set on something, or being somewhere I shouldn’t be, you better distract me with a toy or I’ll carry out my objective! I am cuddly, and I absolutely love belly scratches, which always bring about loud purring.  I may do fine by myself, but I would prefer having a companion to play with. To learn more about me, call or text Carla at 818-216-5477



Humphrey


 
 
 
 
 
Hi! My name is Humphrey and I come from a litter of ten brothers and sisters! My foster mom is caring for me and my two siblings, Gregory and Lauren. I just love playing with them! We have lots of fun wrestling and playing with some very cool toys like mice and crinkly balls. I’m told I am the sweetest, most cuddly, kind, affectionate and gentle of the bunch. You can pick me up and I will stay in your arms until you’re ready to put me down. I get lots of hugs and kisses and I really like it! My foster mom likes to hold me in her arms and cradle me like a baby, the same way she holds Gregory! I may do ok by myself, but I would prefer having a companion to play with. To learn more about me, call or text Carla at 818-216-5477



Gregory


 
 
 
 
 
Hi! My name is Gregory and I come from a litter of ten brothers and sisters! My foster mom is caring for me and my sister, Lauren and brother, Humphrey. I just love to play with them! We have lots of fun wrestling and chasing a string with these colorful feathers on it. Of course, other toys are fun too when my mom can’t taunt us with that feather!  I’m told I am very cuddly, kind, sweet and gentle. I get lots of hugs and kisses. As a matter of fact, my foster mom likes to hold me in her arms and cradle me like a baby. I really like that, and you can hold me as long as you like! I may do fine by myself, but I would prefer having a companion to play with. To learn more about me, call or text Carla at 818-216-5477



Katniss


 
 
 
 
 
Katniss is a strong female protagonist with a not-so-hidden tender side. She has the face of a baby bobcat, and the purr of a John Deere tractor. She loves to explore and is very affectionate. Katniss likes to “talk” and her purr comes easily and loudly. She’s very fond of scratches behind her ears, sitting on her human’s belly, and nuzzling earlobes and fingertips. Katniss loves hunting peacock feathers and cat dancers! Her favorite napping spot is on top of her cat carrier! Katniss is fond of her foster brother Emo and tolerant of our full-grown cat Loki. She would be an excellent kitten for adults, families with kids, families with cats, but we are not sure about dogs. She has a gorgeous silver and white coat that looks to be longhair, so she will need a good brushing every so often. (Luckily, she LOVES being brushed!) Please contact her foster mom Amie at brockwaymetcalf@me.com if you are interested in meeting this lovely kitty.



Kitten Foster Volunteer

The Kitten Foster Program is always recruiting fosters!
SIGN UP TO FOSTER HERE

Every year hundreds of kittens arrive at the Burbank Animal Shelter, but the shelter does not have the capacity to house them all. The VBAS Kitten Foster Program (KFP) was established in 2001 to meet this need, and each year KFP saves over 250 tiny kittens. Without this program these kittens would not survive.

Kitten Foster Parents take in these tiny kittens and care for them until they reach 2 pounds and can be adopted. We are always in need of more volunteers to help! We need you!

Fill out the Kitten Foster Volunteer Profile and a recruiter will be in touch with you upon receiving your profile.

Have questions? Check out some answers below!

What does fostering entail?
Foster families provide warm, loving homes and care for kittens until they reach adoption age. We provide training, supplies and all medical coverage. When your kitten reaches adoption age, we will help you (marketing, advertising, adoption fairs) find a purrfect adopter. Our adoption rate is 100%.

Who can foster?
Anyone with some spare time can foster kittens. We will match you to kittens that fit your lifestyle. Past experience is not necessary, just a love of kittens!

What types of kittens go into foster care?
Kittens that are too small to stay at the shelter (anywhere from 1-2 days old up to 8 weeks) go to foster. Some need to be bottle fed, others are eating already eating solid food, some may need socialization or medical attention. Based on your availability and ability, KFP will find you the right match.

What would my responsibilities include as a foster parent?
Caring for and playing with kittens, making sure they are eating and using the litter box, administering medications according to the medical staff (if applicable), bringing kittens in for medical appointments, attending adoption events, and communicating with the foster program as to the progress of the foster kittens. Kittens remain in foster care until they are adopted, and our adoption rate is 100%.

This sounds great! How can I become involved?
Please complete our Kitten Foster Volunteer Profile. A recruiter will be in touch with you upon receiving your profile.

If you can’t foster, but would still like to help the program:

Adult Dog Foster Program

Actively recruiting Foster Parents for 2018

Ever walk by a kennel and wonder, “Is there really a dog in there? Is it hiding under its bed?” The VBAS Adult Dog Foster Program was established to help dogs like this who aren’t thriving in the shelter environment by placing them in a loving home. 
Foster volunteers house these dogs and provide essential care, supported by the shelter: feeding, socialization with humans and other animals, and medical care. Fosters also promote the dogs in the community and via social media until they are adopted. The program will match dogs that fit their foster’s lifestyle.

Check us out on Instagram to learn about our current foster dogs, and see the work we do:  @vbasdogfoster

Guinevere


 
 
 
 
 
Much like her name, Guinevere is a little queen. She will let you know what she wants and when she wants it. She is the sweetest little girl, who will purr at the sight of you. Guinevere always wants to be around her people, and will follow you from room to room, and insist on being picked up. She also loves to jump on shoulders for a better vantage point. She gets along great with her big foster-brother, Howie, and is good with kids. This little girl would love to either be adopted with her sister Morgana, or go to a home with another cat who can keep her company. If you are interested in adopting Guinevere, feel free to reach out to her foster mom Katie at kheat512@gmail.com



Morgana


 
 
 
 
 
Morgana is a total wackadoodle. She loves to run around and jump out of nowhere like a ninja! The girl has her own style, and she owns it. She is far more independent than her sister, Guinevere, but still loves attention, and will purr at the sight of you. She loves playing with her sister and her big foster-brother, Howie. She would be okay on her own, if given lots of play time and cuddles from her Human but would really prefer to be adopted with her sister or go to a home with another playful cat. If you are interested in Morgana, please feel free to reach out to her foster mom, Katie, at kheat512@gmail.com



BLT

We are very loving siblings. We play together and seek new adventures several times a day.  I overheard our foster parent say that am so sweet and love to cuddle the most.
Please contact my foster mom if you would like to know more about me!
