Foster

Do you have space in your heart to (temporarily) welcome a pet in need into your home? If so, please consider becoming a foster for one of our adorable adoptable pets – it’s one of the most direct ways you can help an animal.

Fostering is a selfless act of compassion. It saves lives while freeing up shelter space so another pet can have a second chance!
Fostering also:

  • Provides a safe, nurturing place to recuperate if a pet is recovering from surgery, illness, or injury
  • Provides the time the pet needs to be ready for adoption
  • Allows time for behavior assessments to be completed outside of a stressful environment
  • Allows time for a pet to de-stress to prevent cage aggression or withdrawal
  • Allows time for the pet to socialize with people and other pets
    Provides quality time with a pet allows its true personality to shine through

What’s the benefit of fostering?

  • It provides an opportunity to “sample” different kinds of pets
  • There’s always something to do with your foster from cuddling to playing fetch
  • Seeing a pet blossom is such a rewarding feeling
  • Fostering may encourage others to open their homes to a pet in need
  • Fostering helps prevent the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets
  • Some foster-related expenses may be tax-deductible
