Fomentar está abriendo temporalmente su hogar a una mascota sin hogar para proporcionar alivio del refugio y un espacio abierto en nuestras instalaciones. El acogimiento puede ser a corto o largo plazo, por razones médicas / de edad, para la preparación del transporte, o simplemente para darle un descanso a uno de nuestros perros o gatos.
Foster parents provide temporary homes for dogs/puppies and cats/kittens before adoption. Providing foster care is a beautiful and personal way to contribute to saving homeless pets.
Pets thrive in homes, and that is our goal to get pets in homes. Fostering helps reduce overcrowding in shelters and opens up space for another animal to be saved. It also helps prepare animals for adoption by giving them a chance to live in a home where they can fully express their personality, work to overcome fears, or recover from trauma.
Open your home to a pet in need!

CAT FOSTER OPPORTUNITIES
Help cats recover
Treatments have to be given regularly for these cats. Ringworm manifests itself on kittens generally on the head, around the eyes, ears, feet, and tail in round areas of hair loss that are rough and scaly.
It is NOT a worm, as the name may lead you to believe. In fact, it is very closely related to Athlete’s Foot found commonly in humans. It most commonly affects young animals and those with suppressed immune systems. Immune systems drop when animals are brought into shelters.
Raise some kittens
Fosters for these neonatal kittens act as surrogate mothers. Bottle babies must be fed formula every two-to-four hours, stimulated to go to the bathroom, kept on a heat source, weighed before each feeding, and closely monitored for illnesses. Foster parents tell us it’s more than worth the effort when they see the babies grow and thrive.
SHORT TERM FOSTER OPPORTUNITIES
Only Have the Weekend to Give?
A weekend away from the shelter gives an animal a break from the noise and chaos of shelter life and lets us find out if they are housetrained, crate trained, and what they act like when they are in a home.
Looking for a friend for the day?
Take dogs out around town, get them a snack through the drive-thru, take them on a walk on a trail, or just drive them around with the wind blowing through their hair. Just like you, dogs need a mental health break sometimes too!
We want to make fostering with us as accessible as possible. However, we do have some requirements for participating.
To get started, complete the dog or cat foster questionnaire. We’ll reach out when a pet meeting your criteria is ready. If you have dogs, we can arrange a meet and greet with your pets at our shelters.
Our greatest need is foster homes for medium-to-large (40-60lbs) dogs.
Be at least 18 years old
Live within a reasonable travel distance to your chosen shelter
Provide transportation for veterinary visits or emergencies
Offer a safe, indoor, temperature-controlled space and adequate food
