Fostering Overview


Want to make a difference in the life of a homeless pet?

Does your heart have room for one more?


Maybe you should consider temporarily opening your home and your heart to a homeless pet.


Fostering provides a much needed bridge between the shelter and placement in a wonderful "furever" home. The shelter environment can be a harsh setting for an animal that is frightened or needs a little extra care. Sometimes a rescue needs a quiet place to recover from surgery; sometimes a mother, and her pups or kittens, needs a few weeks to nurse and grow stronger; sometimes an animal is so overwhelmed by recent experiences that they need time and tenderness to overcome their fears.

You can provide a life-saving opportunity for a homeless pet. You can give an insecure and untrusting rescue the chance to live in a home; the chance to learn that people can be kind; the chance to learn that food and water will be available and they don't have to fight for it; the chance to learn that they can have a warm, secure place to sleep and to heal.


Home Fur Good foster parents are:

  • matched with a cat or dog in need
  • provided with supplies (food, bedding, crate, etc.)
  • provided guidance and support from foster coordinator

Your role as a foster parent is to prepare the rescue for adoption. Even just a week or two can make all the difference!

A timid cat that hides under a blanket will not be adopted quickly. A dog that perhaps was never in a home environment and has "no manners" will not be adopted quickly.

When you teach a dog to walk on a leash or engage a shy kitty in play you provide positive human interaction. You begin to build a foundation of trust. This trust is the bridge that our resilient rescues need help to cross so that they may find happiness and love in their adoptive homes.
