Fostering for a rescued animal in your own home until a permanent adopter is found. It is the primary way that LUXE PAWS is able to rescue cats and kittens because of our foster volunteers. Our cats, kittens, and sometimes dogs come to us off the streets. Our foster volunteers take these cats in, clean them up, get them healthy, and shower them with love until a forever home is found.

Adoption Pop-up's & Special Events:
LUXE PAWS holds several monthly adoption mingles throughout the neighborhood to showcase a few of our adoptable kitties and promote Trap/Neuter/Return or TNR. We're also included in public events throughout the year. In order to successfully execute an adoption event or special event, we need an amazing team of volunteers to help transport kitties, set-up and break down, chat with the public about TNR and spay/neuter and inform potential adopters about the adoption process and collect volunteer/ potential adopter emails for future communication.
LUXE PAWS takes cats and kittens to Fix Nation (near Burbank) on a regular basis, as well as multiple vet appointments at ARK Animal Hospital (near USC). Often times we need help driving multiple cats, delivering medication or dropping off kittens with fosters.
Trapping Cats/TNR Support:
Trap/Neuter/Return requires multiple levels of engagement, from local outreach/talking to the public and scouting TNR locations, coordinating with property owners and feeders for the actual trapping date, trapping cats ( 2 Friday evenings per month and this does require a car and picking up/releasing the cats early Sunday evening). As we grow our team, will also be looking for people who have local private property / a safe space to hold kitties in traps overnight while they recover from surgery. This could be a garage or covered porch.
Spreading the Word:
Not everyone is aware of what we do and what we go through to fix cats and save kittens. We’re always in need people sharing our Facebook posts, helping us build our Instagram following. Social media is key to helping us find adopters and it's the best tool to raise awareness about how many lives can be saved by spay/neuter and TNR.
