What is foster care?
Foster care is a way to help animals currently residing at the shelter by caring for them temporarily in your own home until they are ready to come back to the shelter to be placed up for adoption.
What types of animals benefit from foster care?
Here are a few reasons animals require fostering:
Animals recovering from an illness or injury in need of a calm, quiet place to recuperate
Animals in need of socialization or a little extra attention
Animals who are pregnant or nursing
Animals who are too young to be adopted
Animals needing to put on weight
Animals that are depressed and need a change of scenery
Animals that are stressed by the recent change in their lives and in need of extra attention to adapt
