Kitty City NM provides all medical care for our foster animals at our approved veterinary clinics. Because we are ultimately responsible for your foster cat’s well-being, our staff must authorize any and all treatment for foster cats at our approved veterinary partners.

If your foster cat needs to go to the veterinarian, please notify the foster coordinator by email or phone. The foster coordinator will schedule the appointment and issue you a medical voucher number, which is required for your veterinary appointment. Each voucher has a unique number, assigned by the staff member who authorizes and schedules your appointment. Please bring this voucher number to your appointment; the vet will not see the foster animal without the voucher number.

For non-emergency situations, please understand that our veterinary partners book quickly and may not be available for same-day appointments. We ask that you schedule basic non-emergency appointments (drop-off, pick-up, vaccines and supply pick-ups) at least 24 hours in advance.

Remember, foster parents will be responsible for payment of any medical care if they take their foster animal to a veterinarian without authorization from the foster coordinator or adoptions
manager.

Please note: If you wish to take your foster pet to a veterinarian who’s not on the Kitty City NM list, you must first have approval from the foster coordinator or risk having to cover the costs
yourself.
