I think what you're doing is awesome!

I've only fostered cats a few times and I agree that it was so hard to part with them. I wish I could foster more now, but we have five cats and our home is full. Any more and there'd be chaos and everybody would be miserable. I hope to resume fostering once we move into our own house. One of our local shelters is trying to move towards becoming no-kill. They're trying to expand their facilities and have sunk a lot of money into a spay / neuter subsidy program. They're putting emphasis on their foster program to keep as many animals alive as they can until they've expanded. My two youngest cats, Zeus and Sophie, wouldn't be alive right now were it not for a couple who fostered them along with their mum.

The other shelter in the city has a foster program as well. The shelter that's expanding is a bit more dear to my heart since it's where I got Zeus and Sophie and because they're usually overlooked for donations and volunteering. I certainly wouldn't suggest to anybody that they quit supporting shelters with "kill" policies in place for no reason, but I would suggest getting behind a shelter that manages to scrape together whatever money it has to educate the public the way this small shelter manages to do. They've really impressed me over the past year since they've done a lot of good in my area by putting information out about spaying / neutering and letting animals roam.
