Kitten and Puppy Fosters

Pregnant mothers, as well as moms with very young kittens and puppies, need around-the-clock care and monitoring.  After extensive training, our foster parents help us make sure these animals are safe and comfortable until they're ready to be adopted.  Orphaned kittens and puppies come in too, and sometimes need to be bottle-fed until weaned.  Don't worry - our foster coordinator and medical staff will be with you every step of the way.

Foster Getaways

Sometimes, through no fault of their own, our animals wind up staying with us longer than we'd like.  Foster Getaways are the perfect antidote to the same old same old!  Our dogs and cats come stay with you for a night or two, then return to us fully refreshed. These field trips give our furry friends a much-needed change of scenery as well as a chance to get out and meet potential adopters in the real world.  Think you don't have time to be a foster parent?  Think again.



Out of the hundreds of animals we rescue every year, some require more time and personal attention than we can provide at the shelter.  Many are shy.  Some struggle to thrive in the noisy shelter environment.  Quite a few have never learned basic manners.  We look to our network of foster families to provide the structured support that helps us graduate these animals into their forever homes as quickly as possible

Medical Fosters

Bumps and bruises happen.  Unfortunately for shelter pets, so do broken bones and surgeries.  When our animals need a quiet place to relax and recuperate, we snap on their cones and reach for the phones.  As a member of our network of medical fosters, you'll be trained to nurture our patients through their convalescence.  Don't worry though, it's usually not too complicated: just provide love, rides to regular checkups, and a peaceful place to heal.
