Foster

Why Foster?

Becoming a foster provides critical care for a shelter pet. Sometimes, foster care provides a needed break from shelter life. Often, fosters are needed for pets who are too young for adoption, or need time to recover from a health issue. Placing these animals into foster homes not only makes their lives better, but also saves the lives of those who take their place. Fostering a shelter animal is a rewarding experience, but requires hard work and dedication.

What It Takes

PAWS provides all information, tools, and resources necessary to those who would love to help, but may not have much experience! As a PAWS foster, you just provide the food (given to you by PAWS), water, shelter and love. On occasion, you may need to bring your foster pet to our clinic for routine check-ups and care.
