Foster-to-adopt is a great way to learn if one of our cats or dogs is a good fit for your family prior to committing to adoption. When you foster-to-adopt, you commit to take the animal home until a permanent home is found and then get some time to decide whether the relationship is meant to be.
It can be a big decision to adopt a dog and one that is made a little bit easier when you choose to foster-to-adopt! Fostering to adopt gives you the opportunity to have the dog you are interested in adopting while opening a space at the shelter to save another dog in need.
It's difficult to judge a book by its cover, and it's even harder to judge a pet by a meet and greet. Foster-to-Adopt helps us fulfill our mission to get amazing animals out of the shelter and allows you more time to get to know your potential new furry friend.
You are commiting to fostering your chosen animal until a permanant home is found with the option to keep them if they're the perfect fit!
If it's not the right fit, fosters will keep animals an average of 4-8 weeks. Some pets need more time because of age, illness, injury, or behavior issues. Your time commitment will be discussed up-front before you agree to foster the pet, but most foster families keep the animal until the animal gets adopted.
