Short-term fostering can be anywhere from a week to two months. We provide everything you need to get started: food, dishes, toys, crates, towels, etc. You provide a safe home and plenty of love and socialization. Fosters may also be asked to bring these animals to adoption events once they are ready to find their forever homes.
Some examples of short-term foster care:
- Nursing moms with little ones who need a quiet environment to raise their babies.
- Bottle babies who need constant feeding and care.
- Sick or injured animals that need a calm space to recuperate until they are ready for adoption.
- Kittens and cats who are ready for adoption, but need a safe loving home in between adoption events, so they stay socially, developmentally, and emotionally healthy.
Long-Term “Forever” Fostering
Forever Fostering is a very special program which allows our overlooked pets to have a real home. Long-term fostering helps re-socialize these overlooked, health challenged or senior animals. Fostering helps make these cats more appealing for adoptive families, improving their chances of finding a forever home!
We will cover any needed veterinary expenses and routine treatments deworming, vaccines, de-fleaing, etc… We provide everything you need to get started: food, dishes, toys, crates, towels, etc. After the initial period we ask that forever fosters cover the expense of food, litter, and toys. This frees us up to budget for the ever-increasing veterinary expenses and lets us save more animals.
In most cases, forever fostering is for the life of the pet. Our forever foster parents are extraordinarily kind people. They are compassionate, strong, and deeply loving. They give our neediest animals the precious gift of a stable, comfortable home, if they don’t find adopters.
Other examples of long-term foster care:
- Are too old or too stressed for adoption events.
- overlooked due to minor medical conditions.
- Have been overlooked by adopters for a long long long time.
