The Animal League’s Foster Pet Parent Program

Foster parent

The sad truth is there are many animals suffering from exposure, homelessness, illness, and starvation. We are often their last hope. Every foster family helps save a life we may not have been able to save otherwise. By opening your heart and home to our dogs or cats, you get to play a huge role in preparing them for their chance at a happy, healthy life.

We hear people say that they’re afraid they’ll love the animal too much to say goodbye. We can empathize because every animal that comes to our shelter is one we love dearly. The alternative however is that without a foster that cat or dog (or litter) might never know love, or what it feels like to have a full belly, or to be healthy and free from pain. Because of that, although tears may be shed when our baby goes on to their forever home we are happy, not only for them, but because we can now welcome in another animal in need.

Fostering is for you if you:

  • want to help some of the many homeless and stray animals who may never have known a loving touch or warm bed or who have been abandoned for no fault of their own.
  • can provide a safe environment where a dog, puppy, cat, or kitten will be treated kindly.
  • want to save a small life.
