FOSTER OVERVIEW

When we send animals home with a foster, we are not in any way separate from the animal nor the foster parent.  Our goal is to be as inclusive as possible for both the animals out in the community through our foster program, as well as those who are opening their hearts and homes.

Though they may be physically "apart" from us, they are in fact very much always "a PART" of us!!

ABOUT THE FOSTER PROGRAM

With the help of an amazing group of foster caregivers our foster program gives animals who are not yet ready for adoption a chance to live and be loved in foster homes.  This allows the shelter to take in more cats and dogs and reduces the amount of time an animal stays in our on site facilities.  Fostering also provides us with invaluable information from the foster family to help prepare animals for adoption.  Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience you'll never forget, and improves the lives of shelter animals in a very direct way.  

If you are interested in the possibility of becoming a foster for our organization, please follow the links below for more detailed information. Be sure to fill out our application to begin the process to becoming an approved foster home.

THE PROCESS

The application process to become a foster is designed to promote SUCCESSFUL placement of animals in appropriate foster homes.  Each home offers something unique and each animal has unique needs...our goal is to place everyone with the best possible match.  Our process is designed to allow us to get to you know you so that we are best able to make a good match.  We understand that it can seem overwhelming, but the time we take to find appropriate placements helps our foster success rate exponentially - so we thank you in advance for you your patience and cooperation!
