Fostering Saves Lives.
That is the bottom line. Fostering saves the life of the animal you foster and the life of another animal waiting for that spot in the shelter.
We are entirely foster based with the exception of our two Petco locations. In order for us to say Yes when our local shelters ask for help, or when life circumstances force a family to rehome their beloved pet, or when we get a call about a cat thrown outside in dire circumstances we need YOU to open your home and heart. It only takes a space as small as a bathroom and a little bit of TLC to foster. We provide the rest!
While fostering for PAR we provide all necessary medical care and facilitate the adoption. For most of our fosters, providing the food and litter for the fostered pet themselves is the easiest way. But don't forget these expenses are tax deductible donations! We do ask you to bring your fostered pet to our adoption events and to send us photos to increase their exposure and chances at adoption.
As a foster, you do have the option to "foster fail" - which means adopting your foster.
