What is a pet foster parent?

Pet foster parents provide a temporary home and care for an animal prior to adoption. Fostering an animal is a wonderful way to get involved and volunteer.

Taking animals into your home, loving them, caring for them, and then letting them go takes a special kind of person. The role of the foster parent is to prepare the animal for adoption into their fur-ever home! 

From time to time we look for foster homes to help care for our special needs animals. 

These animals might be...

  • Young kittens/puppies that are not old enough to be adopted and need care (like nursing/bottle feeding)

  • Animals recovering from surgery/illness

  • Long term shelter residents that need experience living in a real home 

  • Animals that are a little shy and need to build confidence 

  • Animals that are not doing well in a shelter environment but do well outside of it

Whatever the reason, the animals need a little extra love and care before they can be adopted. Providing foster care for a few days, weeks, or in some cases months can be a lifesaving gift for them.
