one of the biggest tenets of the no kill philosophy is to put faith in people, everyday people. one way rescue groups and shelters are doing that is by relying on the community for foster care of young, sick or injured animals who would have a hard time living in a shelter environment. if you have ever considered fostering cats here's your opportunity to give it a go. check out this story on a foster care giver in illinois, respectfully thought of as the cat woman.
