Foster homes are needed to help us in our mission to save the lives of Maine Coons and Maine Coon mixed cats:  they need a safe place to live until their forever homes are found.  Foster homes provide food, water, litter, toys, scratching posts and/or cat furniture, and lots of love!  East Coast Maine Coon Rescue can provide a monthly stipend if needed for food and litter.

If you are interested in fostering for ECMCR, please submit the form below.  East Coast Maine Coon Rescue will review and approve all requests for fostering.   Please do not commit yourself or ECMCR without checking with us first! Please print out a copy of this form for future reference.

FOSTER-TO-ADOPT Policy: Our mission is to save as many cats as possible. Those interested in fostering-to-adopting must complete a foster application AND a case manager application. Due to the amount of time it takes to onboard and train a foster home, we require only our foster-to-adopt volunteers to complete a short work term as a case manager volunteer prior to receiving their first foster cat. Once 5 applications have been successfully processed, you can receive your first foster cat. Please specify you intend to foster-to-adopt in the volunteer application.


Note:  Foster applications are used for rescue purposes only.  East Coast Maine Coon Rescue does not, under any circumstances, sell information about our applicants.

Your submission of the Foster Application means you have read and agree to comply with the ECMCR Foster Home Guidelines.

​Please answer all questions on this form and submit the application fee.  Failure to respond to some questions or not send in the completed form may cause unnecessary delays in the processing of your application. You will get an email with your responses upon completion.

Thank you for your willingness to help with our rescue efforts!

Once you complete the application, please submit the $5 application fee. Fostering cats in need is a vital part of rescue and we want to be sure of your dedication to the cause.
