Help Out by Fostering a Rescue Animal
Rescues are always in need of foster homes for their animals. If you have the time and room available consider letting a homeless cat into your home until a permanent home is found.
The rescue handles vetting and supply costs for your foster. You may need to get the cat to the appointments. Rescue may also ask you to commit to bringing your foster to weekend adoption events.
Fostering can be a great experience, but it is a big commitment. Before deciding that fostering is right for you consider the following:
Is everyone in the home OK with the idea?
Do you have enough time & resources to dedicate to the animal?
Are your current pets OK with having new animals in the home?
Are you emotionally prepared to say goodbye to the animal when a home is found and finalize the adoption?
Are you OK with the extra cleanup and responsibility another animal will bring?
Do you have any pet restrictions based on jurisdiction or housing policies?
Do you have the time to take the animal to adoption events & vet visits?
Fostering is a great way to help animal shelters. It’s not right for everyone, and there is no such thing as a perfect foster home. But if you’re able to give some extra time to an animal in need you can make a huge difference.
Fosters are a big part of what helps keep rescues going. They keep animals out of the stressful shelter environment, make room for new animals to come in, and are able to provide potential adopters with invaluable information that ensures it’s a good match.
