Almost any animal in the shelter would benefit from foster care, and we have programs for all of them.
Some pets are healthy and adoptable, but just get overlooked. They may have been waiting for homes for extended periods of time, and simply need a break from shelter life, or perhaps are shy and feeling overwhelmed in the shelter. Often these "shelter wallflowers" will bloom when they get out of the shelter and into a home.
Pets with medically treatable conditions often would benefit from TLC in the comfort of a home or may need help with socialization or training. The shelter sees many pets that would be highly adoptable, if they could just have a few weeks to recover from common ailments, like kennel cough or puppy mange. Sometimes we have a dog that is recuperating from surgery or a litter of kittens who aren’t quite sure if they can trust people. All great candidates for foster! We provide medications prescribed by our veterinarian, and any training tips you need…you just add the love…and the TIME needed to heal!
Foster animals are pets that have been ‘tagged” or chosen by a rescue group. They have a place to go, but waiting on transport. These pets may need a few days or a week, by leaving the shelter, they open up their cage so we can help another animal.
