Our fosters are special people who are ready to volunteer their time to help save an animal's life within hours of being euthanized. They take in dogs or cats when the animal shelter facilities are full. The animals may be in our foster care for a few weeks or a few months, depending on the need.
How You Can Help Us...
Foster volunteers feed, groom, socialize, train, and medicate (if needed) during the animals stay in your foster home.
We will pay for the necessary veterinary care and medicine the animal needs during its stay in foster care. Foster volunteers are responsible for providing food, time, and tender loving care. As donations start coming in, we will also help with providing food and supplies.
During your foster pet's stay, we will diligently post your pet's bio and photograph on our website and on Petfinder.com. They will have the option to meet all potential adopters. But before an animal goes home, they will need to be spayed/neutered and microchipped if services are needed.
To be a Foster Volunteer:
Foster parents must be able to provide a safe, loving and stable environment for the foster animal. Experience with dog/cat behavioral or medical issues is a plus, but is not necessary.
Foster parents must have common sense and patience, as well as be willing to nurse any injury and/or illness — with the understanding that some issues may result in the death of the dog/cat.
Foster parents should be able to transport their foster animal to and from veterinary appointments, adoption events, etc. or make the necessary arrangements to do so.
