Why Become a Pet Foster Parent?
There are times when we have limited space in the shelter or have dogs/cats in our care that don't adjust well to the busy shelter environment. That's where our foster homes come in! We provide our fosters with everything they need to make sure that our pets are kept happy and healthy including food, crates, litter boxes, cat litter, bedding, toys, etc! All we ask from you is to provide a loving, temporary home until we are able to find them their perfect forever home.
Fostering is an excellent option for individuals / families who love dogs & cats but aren't able to commit long term yet or just those who wouldn't mind some extra company in the house! Helping a pet in need is a richly rewarding experience and offers many animals a second chance at life.
What Kind of Pets Require a Foster Home?
- Pets that are ill and are required special attention
- Nursing mothers with puppies / kittens
- Pets that have been abused or neglected and aren't ready for the shelter environment
Sometimes a pet just needs time to adjust. Some pets that come into shelters are confused or stressed in the new environment and a foster home gives them the time to relax and enjoy themselves again before they're put up for adoption!
