Animal Foster Programs

COVID-19 Update: Due to the amazing response we’ve had from people interested in fostering during the Shelter in Place Order, we are no longer in need of fosters. If you have submitted an application, a team member will be in contact with you if we need additional fosters.

Why Foster?

  • Each animal fostered in a home opens space at the shelters for us to save another animal!
  • Preparing a homeless pet for adoption by giving your love, time, and friendship is such a rewarding feeling.
  • Fostering gives animals a more comfortable and natural place to thrive because some animals don’t do well in a shelter. 
  • The addition of a foster animal brings immeasurable richness and joy to the household. Foster animals will repay you for your patience and love by giving back ten times more love of their own. And when they go to their new forever home, your heart will swell with joy. What could possibly be more gratifying than to save a life and create a "happy ever after" ending?
  • It’s a great way to meet new people who care about animals.
  • Fostering can also provide certain special needs animals with individual attention they may require.
  • If you’re not in a position to adopt an animal now, fostering is a great way to see if you are ready for the life-long commitment involved with pet ownership.
