WHAT IS FOSTERING?
Fostering is providing care for orphaned, sick and injured animals until such time that they are mature enough and/or healthy enough to be adopted.
WHAT IS A FOSTER PARENT?
Foster parents are dedicated volunteers who provide a temporary home and care for animals not yet ready for adoption due to illness, injury or age.

A loving home makes the perfect environment for fostered animals.
HOW LONG DOES AN ANIMAL NEED TO BE FOSTERED?
This depends on the type of illness, injury or age of the animal(s) being fostered. This time may range from one week to three months.
ARE THERE ANY EXPENSES FOR A FOSTER PARENT?
