About Foster Care

An estimated 7.6 million animals enter America’s shelters every year. Countless others are taken in by organizations who don’t have brick-and-mortar facilities, and therefore, rely on keeping animals in foster homes until they’re adopted. When shelters are running out of space or have animals who are not faring well in a kennel environment, they often rely on these foster-based rescue organizations to take in animals and help them find adoptive homes.

What is so important about being a foster based rescue…
  • Fostering highly increases an animal’s chance of getting adopted. Animals in foster care tend to be less stressed, better socialized, and have a lower chance of getting sick than animals in shelters. You may even be the first to teach your foster pet basic house manners, making them more appealing to potential adopters.
  • Fostering keeps animals out of boarding facilities and shelters which can be very stressful with the noise, barriers, lack of adequate exercise, etc.
  • Pets who might not thrive in a shelter setting have a chance to be healthy and happy. It also helps potential adopters get to see what a great personality the animal has in a home setting.
  • Some animals are not ready to be adopted immediately. In addition to needing extra love and care, they have to learn to trust people and to live in a human environment. Foster parents help these animals by providing a temporary home until the animal is ready for adoption.




We believe that foster care is the best environment to care for a rescued pet.  We want to learn about the animal in order to make sure we are finding the best forever home for the animal and the human.  Finding the right fit is one of our top priorities and foster care is how we do it, this is why we are a foster-based rescue.
