The purpose of foster care is to allow a dog or cat to live in a home environment while awaiting permanent placement, permitting the Foster Family to evaluate the pet and to work with the pet to reincorporate him or her back into a home environment. A home environment is less stressful on the pet than a boarding facility or shelter. The exposure the pet gets from being treated as "one of the family" (walks, outings, etc...) often speeds up the adoption process.
Adopt-A-Stray considers our Foster Families to be essential to the welfare and proper placement of our pets, and wishes the experience to be enjoyable and free from misunderstandings.
