Animal Care Services is one of the top ten largest intake shelters in the country. We have a 90%+ Live Release Rate every month, but it is only because of dedicated caring people in our community, like you!
Fostering is a wonderful experience for those who want to help animals. It is a great way to open your home to the compassion of caring for animals in need, and it’s also a great way to see what different pets work well in your home. Many fosters have found a perfect companion by opening their home to those animals in need. Fostering will fill your heart with love and inspiration and it will make a big difference in our community. Seeing pets that didn’t have any other options find wonderful homes is one of most fulfilling jobs you’ll ever have!
Most of our many pets just need a little more time to find their forever home. Being a foster family has rewards beyond the essential value of helping a pet in need find a new home. For some, it is a chance to have an animal companion without a lifetime commitment. For others, it is the special challenge of helping an animal recover from an illness or injury, the trauma of losing a beloved owner or home, or to overcome a behavioral issue. Occasionally, it’s the joy of giving extra TLC to kittens and puppies too young to be adopted.
The number of animals we can save depends entirely on the number of people who open their homes and hearts to foster them.
