Alley Cat Allies recently came out with suggestions on rehoming which encompasses much of what is found elsewhere. Makes an excellent point about you being the best path for an animal to find a home, even though shelters seem more expert -- they often euthanize for lack of space, inability to pay individual or a lot of attention to each animal or bec. cats particularly stress out and get sick. You CAN rehome an animal and it's worth making the effort. Do it right, but don't be a scairdy fraidy cat.

http://www.petfinder.com By trolling through Petfinder and calling fosterers, you can sometimes get information about the organization for whom their animal is being fostered, and also you might ask about other area resources and organizations. If you do reach out to a foster person this way, do not expect them to accept your animal. Interview for information. Avoid Petfinder's Classifieds which elicit some bizarre responses from out of area and overseas saying they will send you a check and you send back the difference from shipping expenses. No one known to me has gotten even one legitimate non-scammy sounding responses.
