Foster a Pet

Our foster care team is vital to our mission; that is to save more lives! We look for responsible, animal loving people who are willing to open up their hearts and homes for our animals.

To be a foster provider means to have a shelter pet in your home temporarily. You are increasing our capacity to care for more animals. For every one animal in foster care, two lives are saved: the animal going into your home and the other animal entering the empty cage. We provide all medical care for foster animals; the foster parent provides, food, water, cat litter, and lots of love!

Animals that are in need of a foster home may have special-needs, are extremely sick and need extra medical attention, or are recovering from a special surgery. During the kitten season, we need foster homes to care for moms with litters as well as orphan kittens that need to be bottle-fed.
