• You help increase that dog’s chances of finding their forever homes

    By fostering you link your foster pet with their new potential homes, you spread the word about what a good pet they are and increase their chances of being adopted. By living with you they learn behavior that will make them more appealing to other families.

  •  Your own dog will benefit from the new house guest

    Your dog will increase it’s social circle. It is important for them to be around a variety of dogs. By fostering you will be supplying your dog with a short term playmate, a wrestling buddy and in return your dog can act as a role model for your foster dog.

  • Are you really ready for another pet?

    Is your family ready for the commitment of adding another pet? With fostering you have a chance to see whether or not another pet is right for your family. Maybe providing short term care is right for your family.

  •  You help us learn about your foster dog

    Your interactions are imporant in helping us place your foster dog with their forever family. You can give us insite into their unique personalities and behavioral issues. You can give us valuable information we are then able to pass along to potential adopters like; do they like children or beg at the table, do they chase are cats, are they crate-trained and housebroken, do they know basic commands and do they have have high or low energy.

  •  You are saving an animal

    Many shelters are overflowing and beyond their limits with unwanted and abandoned cats and dogs. Without foster homes we cannot pull dogs or cats that maybe in danger of being euthanized. The more foster homes we have the more animals we can help save.

  •  Without foster homes we could not operate

    We are 100% foster-based and without our LOVING, CARING foster homes we simply could not keep our rescue running.

  • It makes you feel good

    Finding your foster pet a new home is a great feeling. Knowing you helped give a second chance to an animal in need is very rewarding.

Why Foster an Animal?

Some of the benefits of fostering include:

  • If you’re considering adopting, you can see what the full-time commitment is like by fostering a dog or cat in your home (please note that we request you commit to at least 6 months of fostering before adopting. We can only rescue as many animals as we have foster homes for, so we need committed foster homes on an on-going basis)
  • You will have the joy of watching a puppy/kitten play, grow and flourish in your care
  • You will teach your children responsibility and care for an animal
  • We are very flexible, if you can’t foster for part of the summer or you’re going away, you can take a break and pick back up again when you return
  • You as the foster family have the final say in which family adopts the animal (all potential adopters go through a pre-screening)
  • You can be directly involved in saving a dog or cat’s life!!
