Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Resources

Most rescue groups don't do spays/neuters, as they are already very stretched for funds, but many provide information on which local clinics and organizations do low-cost spays/neuters/care.

Classes for Fostering Kittens

Most rescue organizations have fostering classes where you can learn what you need to do. If you take a class offered by the particular organization you want to foster for, you can learn their own methods. If they don't offer a class, ask to speak with someone in the organization who has been fostering for a LONG time. Ask if you can call them if you run into problems or have questions when you begin to foster. It's like having a "mentor." It does take a lot of work, but it is rewarding (and heartbreaking) and you need to be prepared to understand that you have to give them up at some point which is more difficult that it sounds.
