FOSTERING

Foster homes play a vital role in providing a safe haven for the neglected, abused, and abandoned cats and dogs that we rescue. As a foster, you provide a nurturing and affectionate environment, offering something that these cats and dogs may have never experienced before.

 

By fostering, you give our rescue cats and dogs the opportunity to transition gradually from street life to a loving environment they truly deserve, thereby enhancing their prospects for adoption.

 

If you have the space, time and love to offer, consider becoming a foster  and making a difference in the lives of these animals. Complete our Foster Application form below to be considered.

Home Check

We will schedule a home check video call to get to know you better and ensure that the home environment is suitable for our animals. This step is crucial in ensuring a good fit for everyone involved.

agreement 

Once all parties are satisfied, we will add you to our approved foster list. When a fostering opportunity arises that matches your home, we will contact you!

  • What does fostering require?
    Fostering a rescue cat or dog means caring for them until a permanent home match is found. This means loving them, keeping them safe, well fed and well taken care of as if they are your own pet.
  • What is the time frame for fostering?
    Typically foster care is needed anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months. However, the length of the process varies depending on the cats/dog. Some cats/dogs can be adopted quickly and others may take longer to find the right family. We ask each home to be willing to continue fostering as long as necessary until the forever home is found. If you have a time limit restriction please let us know in the application process.
  • Who will pay for the foster cats/dog’s supplies?
    We will help provide food, toys, bedding, treats, and more based on the cats’s/dog's needs. Although definitely not required, if you are able to provide any of the above for your foster cat/dog, it helps us tremendously and is considered a donation to the rescue.
  • Who will pay for medical costs?
    We will cover all medical costs for the foster cat/dog. In order for us to cover the costs, we ask that all medical visits and treatment be arranged with our knowledge.
  • Do fosterers for Help Street Cats and Dogs have to have had prior fostering experience?
    No, prior experience is not a requirement. If we think a cat/ dog might need an experienced fosterer, we will match it accordingly.
