Fostering Saves Lives!
As a forever shelter, we have limited space, because all of our animals stay with us until they are adopted. We believe that the animals entering our shelter deserve to have the best possible chance at finding a loving, permanent home. For this reason, a foster parent has one of the most important jobs Pet Helpers.
Foster parents allow our cats and dogs to receive the proper care and attention they deserve as they wait for adoption. These animals are often difficult to care for in a shelter environment, because they are orphaned or abandoned, recovering from major surgery, or in need of one-on-one socialization. For animals that may need a break from the shelter environment, foster care provides a comfortable home setting that keeps them happy and healthy.
And, of course, our foster program directly engages people in our lifesaving mission and shows the community that SAVING LIVES is a joint effort. As a foster parent you’ll not only save the lives of animals in your care, but you’ll give other animals coming into the shelter, who may not need the same level of attention, a space on our adoption floor to find their own loving homes. Are you ready to save lives with us?
Fostering, for me, is the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I’m able to foster because I know that it gave each of those precious dogs that I loved so deeply the chance to find the exact life I dreamed of for them.Dana Rice
