Foster Program

Why foster?

Fostering is a terrific way to help save a life. Through fostering, kennel space is freed up, which allows us to help more animals. By fostering, you will get to know that animal’s personality. This will help us when it comes to placing them into a permanent, loving home.

Since the foster program was initiated, over 1,000 lives have been saved. These are the lives of those who are:

  • Too young to be adopted
  • Recovering from illness, injury or surgery
  • Needing a break from kennel life

Foster Success Stories

Victus Success Story

Victus

Victus was born part of a litter of six to a feral mom. The mom didn’t have any mothering instincts. Although we tried saving all six, she is the only one that survived. She has been bottle fed since day one and has somehow managed to survive. Here she is at one month old. Without foster care, she may have left this world too soon as well.

Vex and Brianna Success Story

Vex and Brianna

Vex and Brianna, brother and sister, were too young to adopt out. They also had upper respiratory infections. Through foster care, they have survived and have been successfully adopted. Otherwise, they may not have made it.
