Chestnut is a very sweet girl! One of her favourite things to do is to snuggle on the couch with her foster family. She unfortunately wasn’t feeling well after she arrived in Canada (she was recovering from pneumonia), but after some medication and a lot of love she is now doing great and is ready to find her forever home!
She is good with both cats and dogs! She is a nervous girl so she can be reactive to new dogs and people when she’s on walks. But once she knows they mean no harm she is very friendly towards them. This is something her adopter will have to work on with her to help build her confidence.
She has started to come out of her shell more and has started playing with her favourite ball. She also likes playing with her foster dog sibling!

Why We Love Fostering
There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.
*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
