Foster Paws Rescue operates completely on donations and is run completely by volunteers. We are a Cat only, foster based rescue based in the Upstate of South Carolina, serving Greenville and Spartanburg counties primarily, but with reach into Anderson, Laurens, Pickens and Greenwood counties as well. We do not operate a shelter or have a building. We are a foster based rescue, meaning cats in our care are housed in the homes of our volunteers. We are a PetSmart Charities partner, with adoption events each week at the Taylors PetSmart, Greenville Laurens Road PetSmart, and the Simpsonville Petsmart. In addition, we operate the adoption center inside the Taylors & Laurens Road PetSmart, where we house 4-8 cats available for adoption. Foster Paws Rescue was founded in 2010 by two friends with a concern for companion animals in the Upstate of SC and a vision for a No Kill Community. Diana Riglet and Teresa Bryant paved the road to a successful rescue based on an Open Adoption Policy and Donation based adoptions. Today, Foster Paws Rescue is led by a dedicated group of volunteers that are passionate about furthering the mission of the founders and saving cats in the Upstate. Our volunteers serve in various capacities including, but not limited to: Fosters, Adoption counselors, Adoption event staff, Transporters, Adoption center staff, Social media staff, Photographer, Medical Assistance, Community Event Coordinators, Adoption Follow-ups, Communication Specialists and More!
Our adoption process is conversation based, with a short application. Our goal is for every cat to have a forever home, and we are passionate about helping our cats find the “right” home. We spend time talking with every adopter about the dynamics of their home and what type of cat would fit their lifestyle best! Since our foster cats have lived IN a home with a foster, we know a lot about their personalities and likes and dislikes. This is one of the biggest advantages to adopting from a Foster based rescue like Foster Paws!
