One of PBJ’s biggest needs as a rescue is having foster homes available to receive incoming shelter cats, but an equally big need is being able to afford their veterinary expenses after we’ve rescued them. In 2017, PBJ spent, on average, $250 per cat while in our care.

For those of you who want to make a difference by saving the life of a shelter cat, but don't have the time or space to foster a cat in your home, we proudly introduce our new *Virtual* Foster © program.
  • For a tax-deductible donation of $250*, PBJ will rescue a kitty from the shelter with you as their sponsor;

    * You may also sponsor a senior cat, who will require extra medical attention (wellness bloodwork, dental), or a momma with kittens, for a donation of $500.

  • You will receive recognition for your kindness on this webpage (see our gallery of virtual fosters below), and updates on your virtual foster via email from the time of their arrival until their forever home is found.
