Pet fostering provides temporary care to shelter animals who need to live in a home environment prior to adoption. Whether the animal is too young to be adopted, recovering from an injury or illness, or dealing with anxiety from the stressful shelter environment, when you open your heart and your home to care for them, the benefits are both immediate and long-lasting to the pet's overall health, safety, and security.
Why is fostering so important?
Foster families play an essential role in animal rescue by providing care and support for the most vulnerable animals in our shelter. By fostering, you're able to plant the seed in a young, scared, or injured animal's life that love and protection is not only possible but permitted!
In a foster home, not only do our animals receive personalized, individual care while avoiding exposure to common shelter illnesses, but they also learn how to bond with people and other pets, which sets them on a path for success for the rest of their lives!
As a foster parent, you're able to spend much more one-on-one time with our animals than we can in order to learn about their personalities and behaviors and share that valuable information with us, which in turn helps our Adoption Team find them their perfect forever home!
