Become a foster family to displaced animals
Help save countless lives
If you love animals and would like to adopt one of your own but aren’t sure you’re ready for a long-term commitment, fostering shelter animals might be a good option for you. But what does that involve exactly?
Foster families are volunteers who temporarily house and care for shelter animals awaiting adoption. While pets with special needs (e.g. medication) require longer stays, cats and dogs are typically placed in foster care for a few weeks. Families may choose to welcome more than one guest (such as a litter of kittens) if they so desire.
A second chance
Because animal shelters are often overcrowded, there isn’t always enough room to house all the stray and abandoned pets in need. That’s why foster families are so important. Volunteers help reduce the burden on shelters and save countless animals.
