Have Questions?
Here are some answers to common questions.


I already own a pet. Can I still foster?

Before you bring a foster animal home, consult with your veterinarian to make sure your own pets are up-to-date on their vaccinations. You may wish to ask your veterinarian if your pets need any additional vaccinations.

Can I adopt the animal I foster?

Yes. Foster parents who wish to adopt the animal they foster go through the same screening process as adoption applicants.

Who should foster a pet?

- Someone who cannot, at the moment, adopt a pet for its entire lifetime.
- Someone who never had the chance to have a pet but would really like to have one now.
- Someone who loves pets and has some room to welcome them while they wait for an adoptive home.

How long is a foster period?

The length of fostering can vary from a few days to several months.
