Fostering

Say yes, and help save the lives of shelter dogs. Give fostering a try!

The lives you save and the love you get will warm your heart. If you have children, the lessons they learn from fostering will enrich their lives!

Our simple Foster family Program saves lives this way:

Dogs who may otherwise be destroyed at an over-crowded shelter, are temporarily placed with you, their Foster Family, until a Forever Family is found.

You, the foster parent, are never under any obligation! You may return your Foster Pet to us anytime, for any reason. You may foster a pet once a year or once a week!

We only ask that you give your foster pet food, shelter and love. Medical expenses, if any, are paid by the rescue group. We provide you with the supplies needed to give your foster pet a great start at a new life. You can also take your Foster Pet to scheduled Pet Adoption Days, or a volunteer from the rescue group can do so.

I already own a pet. Can I still foster?

Before you bring a foster animal home, consult with your veterinarian to make sure your own pets are up-to-date on their vaccinations. You may wish to ask your veterinarian if your pets need any additional vaccinations.

Can I adopt the animal I foster?

Yes. Foster parents who wish to adopt the animal they foster go through the same screening process as adoption applicants.

Still on the fence? Think of this………Wouldn’t you rather cry watching them leave your home to live a life of happiness and joy then cry because no one stepped up to help them and they died alone, frightened and sad in a shelter.  There is no greater legacy to leave, than a beating heart that would not have had a chance, had it not been for you.
