Foster care

Become a foster carer

Foster carers provide a temporary, loving home for pets who are recovering from surgery, undergoing behaviour training, too young for adoption, or need some extra TLC outside of the busy shelter environment.

Becoming a foster carer is an incredibly rewarding experience for all involved. Not only does it provide shelter pets with a temporary home to grow, rehabilitate and recover – it also gives you a sense of fulfillment knowing you have played a special part in preparing these dogs and cats for adoption and a forever home.

Pets of all breeds and ages require foster care. For more information about how our Foster Care Program works, please read our Foster Care FAQ.
