What is Fostering?


Fostering is when you open up your home and heart to temporarily care for an animal that needs to recover from an illness, injury, a baby animal who needs care before they're old enough to be adopted, or an animal with behavioral needs who can benefit from a quiet home before they can begin their journey to find an adoptive home.

Why is fostering so important?

  • Foster families play an essential role in animal rescue. They provide care and support for the most vulnerable animals in our shelter.

  • While in a foster home, our animals learn how to bond with people, receive necessary personal care, and avoid exposure to common shelter illnesses, all while away from the stress of a shelter environment.

  • Our fosters are able to learn more about each animal's personality and needs, which in turn helps the adoption staff to find fitting adoptive homes.

  • Fostering also opens up space in the shelter allowing us to save more lives.
