Foster A Pet
In 2015, 57,000 animals ended up in Valley shelters. Some were surrendered or turned into shelters and others were rescued off of the streets. Many homeless animals need special treatment, time, and tender loving care to become adoptable animals. That’s where fostering comes in.
THE ROLE OF THE FOSTER VOLUNTEER
As a foster volunteer, you become a member of a dynamic volunteer force, a team of well-trained animal welfare advocates who are making a real and compassionate difference in our community. Foster-care volunteers bridge the gap between sick, injured, abused or underage animals and the time they need to get healthy and ready for adoption. Foster volunteers expand the walls of animal welfare organizations by caring for sick, injured, or underage animals in their homes until they are ready to be adopted into permanent homes.
HOW TO GET STARTED
If you know that fostering will be your primary focus, you may need to attend a Foster Orientation, during which you will receive an overview of the organization and its place in the community, learn more about animal welfare issues, and become oriented to that particular foster program.
