Fostering helps prepare animals for adoption by giving them a chance to live in a caring home where they can express their personalities, overcome fears, or recover from illness or trauma while they await adoption. It also helps provide more space at our rescue facility.
Once you take in a foster animal, you are responsible for providing the animal with day-to-day care, safety, and shelter. Helping PAWS provides all vaccinations and covers approved veterinary care. Should someone be interested in adopting the animal, you agree to make him or her available to meet the potential adopter. We do ask that an animal is fostered for a minimum of two weeks.
Helping PAWS is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are primarily a volunteer-run organization. If you are interested in joining our volunteer team, please contact us.
