Are you considering fostering?

Is fostering right for you?

Here are some frequently asked questions to help you decide if this is a good choice for you.

What is a Fostering?

Fostering provides a temporary home for an animal (or multiple animals) until they are ready for adoption or until they are adopted. Fosters are incredibly important because they typically care for animals that would benefit from not being in the shelter, including puppies too young for adoption and animals with a medical or behavioral condition that is best addressed in a home setting. Fostering helps save more animals by freeing up space at the shelter to help other animals in need.

Why should I Foster?

  • Helps animals in need.

  • Short-term commitment.

  • Keeps animals out of shelters.

  • It’s free – the rescue provides everything you need to foster.

  • Save lives!

How long is the commitment?

Fostering can last anywhere from a few days to a few months, depending on the needs of the animal. We always have a need for foster homes throughout the year.

What costs will I be responsible for?

Our rescue provides all supplies needed to care for your foster animal. This includes medications, follow-up veterinary visits, food, bowls, crates, collars, and leashes. Fosters are responsible for transportation to and from the shelter for check-ups and medical care.
