Foster-to-Adopt or Foster

Consider Foster-to-Adopt when seeking to add a new member to your family. Foster to Adopt let’s you try a dog or cat out in your home on a trial basis, if the animal is right for your home then you can make the decision to finalize the adoption. If on the other hand during the foster to adopt trial, the pet does not seem like a good fit to your home the animal will be returned to the rescue for someone else to pursue.

You can also select to Foster an animal to help save them from a kill shelter. In that time the animal will be given a chance to relax in a home environment, taught manners and training to become an adoptable pet for a new family.
