WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

For some people, taking care of animals is a special calling, and sometimes that calling leads specifically to cats.

Justin Mills, co-founder of the non-profit All 4 Cats in Wilmington, is one of those people. His organization, run by volunteers, fosters cats and kittens until they can go to good homes.

Right now, Mills is fostering the Kennedy kitties: John, Bobby, Joseph and the rambunctious Jackie O. At just several weeks old, they’re not ready to be adopted out. They’re not heavy enough for their required surgeries to be spayed and neutered.

So Mills looks after the little balls of fur until they get a little older.

"By the time they become adoptable, I know everything about their personality,” Mills said. “We can match someone with exactly what they're looking for."

All 4 Cats relies heavily on foster parents. The more there are, the more animals are saved.

"It's really as simple as just having the desire to be a foster and having the space to be one,” Mills said. “You can foster from one cat to a litter of kittens. It doesn't really cost you anything because the rescue provides the food, the litter, the supplies. It's just mostly opening up your home to these guys."

And opening up your heart.

All the cats are vaccinated and micro-chipped before going to new homes. If you’d like to foster or adopt an animal, email All 4 Cats at foster@all4cats.org or click here: http://bit.ly/1JyQR5O
