Paws for Life Animal Shelter
Interested in Fostering?
What is Fostering? Fostering is like a temporary ownership - you take care of your foster pet as though it were your own until we find the animal the right long-term, stable forever home.
There are several different types of fostering including .....
Sleepover/Weekend Foster - Take a shelter pet home for the weekend, pick up on a Friday evening and bring back on Monday Morning!
Field Trips - Take a shelter pet out to the park or hiking for a few hours!
Adult Dog Foster- Take an older dog home for a couple of weeks to get them out of the shelter, many people come in and adopt out the puppies before even looking at the older adult dogs!
Foster to Adopt - Looking to adopt but aren't sure if its the right fit, foster for a week or so first and decide if it is the right fit!
Emergency Foster- Be on call for any emergencies that may occur, including broken legs, amputation, medical issues.
Behavior Foster - Foster animals that have come in that need help socializing, breaking barrier aggression and helping feral kittens learn that people and abused dogs are not so bad.
