Foster A Pet Up For Adoption
If you’re not prepared to make the leap of adopting a pet, give fostering a try! There are so many animals waiting to be placed, and your kindness can help a lot with their transition.

Fostering a dog or cat can be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. By taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you're freeing up a spot so the shelter or rescue can take in another animal. It can be great practice if you’re hoping to adopt a pet one day but aren’t sure if you’ll be able to handle the responsibility. Also, you’re teaching this animal that it deserves love (which can be difficult for animals that come from abusive situations).

  • I love my rescue bully, a 6 year old shar pei/pit bull mix. I am currently fostering an 11 year old dog, also a bully breed. Had I not volunteered to foster him, he would have been euthanized.

  • a neighbor, my sister and I spent our summer setting up a feral cat colony in our community... our goal was to catch the three moms, have them spayed and bring them back with food stations and homes for them, since they only knew our neighborhood...and to have the kittens spayed and neutered, and released...at less them two pounds they were way to small, so we found foster care for them, and eventually they went to a no kill no release shelter to be homed...our moms are adjusting and seem good with their new life...

  • I volunteered at an animal shelter and I suggest people who read newspapers save the advertisements for the local animal shelters and the veterinarians to help them save money to line the cages of the animals, I know this is a good idea to tell other people to try!

  • I have fostered dogs for 3 different rescues for 9 years now. It brings so much joy, when I get them and when they leave to go to their forever homes (although I feel sad at times parting with them) Everyone can make a difference in a homeless dog or cats life. Adopt, Volunteer, Donate, Transport, Foster, and many other things

  • Fostering is a life saver. Also doing fospice, fostering furbabies that are very sick/ terminal. So they spend their last days/weeks/months knowing kindness & unconditional love.
