OSCatR is a foster home based rescue, meaning our cats are fostered in homes across the city and not in a central facility. Each foster family works with their foster cat(s) to ensure they are healthy and socialized so they can be put up for adoption and find their forever homes.


Our adoption policy requires all our cats to be indoor cats only unless supervised on a harness and leash or in a cat-escape proof enclosure. We spend so much time and energy rescuing them from the outdoors that we want to ensure that all our cats have a long and happy life indoors. There is also the concern that having been strays, some of our cats would revert to their old way of life and not return home.
