Foster care

Become a foster carer

At The Lost Dogs’ Home, we often have animals in need of a little extra attention and care. They may be underweight, recovering from surgery, underage or participating in our behaviour program. Our foster care program provides these animals a temporary home away from the shelter, where they can rehabilitate and recover in a safe and relaxing environment.

Weekend foster is an option for people interested in foster caring who can’t commit to caring for an animal for up to eight weeks.

By taking a dog or cat home for a weekend, these foster carers help the Home better understand the animal’s personality away from the shelter environment. This information helps us match the animal to their ideal forever home.
