Why you should become a foster home today!
Our foster care program provides temporary housing and care for cats, kittens, dogs and puppies who aren't quite ready for adoption. We need loving homes like yours to continue helping these animals in need of a little extra time and care.
What kind of animals need foster care?
• Puppies and kittens under two months old
• Mothers with nursing litters
• Dogs and cats with medical conditions or injuries
• Special needs fosters
Can I become a foster home if I have pets of my own?
Yes, we welcome pet owners as foster homes. Please keep in mind that there is always a health risk when exposing your pets to other animals, in any setting. However, the risk is minimal if your pets are vaccinated and in good health.
How long do animals need to stay in foster care?
The typical foster stay is two weeks to two months, depending on the needs of the individual animal(s) in your care. The timeframe of each foster situation will be discussed with you ahead of time.
What expenses are involved with foster care?
Foster families provide housing, food, bedding and toys for the animals in their care. They also provide exercise, socialization and lots of love! Almost Home provides all medical care for animals in foster homes, including vaccination, medications and spay/neuter surgery.
