If you are interested in fostering, please complete and submit a volunteer application. You will need to complete a volunteer orientation and volunteer at the shelter before becoming a foster volunteer.
Yes, of course. But, when your foster pet finds a new family who`s ready to provide a permanent loving home, you will feel more than satisfied to see him move on to his new life.
If you are fostering and want to go away for a weekend or take a vacation, the foster cat or dog can be returned to the coordinator`s care while you are away. Just arrange it in advance, as soon as you know, and we’ll reserve a spot.
Staff members are available for telephone consultations. Being a foster home is extremely rewarding. However, you should keep in mind that many, but not all, rescue animals are housebroken or may have had little socialization or obedience training. We find that when given a chance these animals not only improve, they flourish in their foster care environment.
A fenced yard is preferred, but not necessary. Foster dogs must NEVER be allowed to run free. If your yard is surrounded by a secure fence, the dog may be exercised there off leash. Outside the yard the dog must be on leash at ALL times.
