Foster an Animal

Foster an animal

One our biggest needs is a place to keep our dogs until we can find them a permanent home!


Our main focus for animal intake is pulling from the local kill shelters.


Since we don't have a shelter, we depend on foster homes. If you have room for a dog in your home, it's one of the best ways that you can volunteer. Foster homes usually keep their animals for a period of a couple of weeks to a couple of months, until they are adopted.


It's easy - we pay for all of the animal's healthcare, food, and supplies, and can provide a crate. All you have to do is provide a loving temporary home!


Fostering is a very fulfilling way to help out. If you've thought about adopting a pet, but aren't quite sure what breed is best for you, fostering is a wonderful way to try out different types of animals and determine whether they are suitable for your lifestyle. You are still helping to save the animals that you don't decide to keep as your own pet! It's a win/win situation.
