Love a homeless pet in your home - Foster cats, kittens or bunnies

Foster
Foster a kitty or bunny

Provide love and care to a homeless cat or bunny so it can find its way from homeless to beloved pet. Foster pets need to be kept seperate from your personal pets (usually), so seperate space is a requirement. You should be able to provide time cleaning your fosters and socializing them to help them become adoptable. Commitment is 2- 6 months. Great opportunity for someone who may not be able to commit long term to a pet or who is limited financially. Transportation is required to take pet to meet adopters or for needed medical care. Supplies and training provided. (Note that providing your own supplies helps us rescue more animals in need!) Our need is greater now that some rescues or shelters are closed. The number of animals we can have in our partner stores is reduced so being a foster is a way to help us keep adoptions going strong.

This rescue is located in Northern San Diego County. You need to live close enough to our veterinarian located in San Marcos, CA 92078 to be able to take foster animals to their appointments.

Mission Statement

A non-profit public benefit corporation rescuing and rehoming animals in need

Description

    • Animal rescue - take in homeless cats, rabbits and horses or animals at risk of being homeless or abused- we are made aware of animals in need of rescue through other organizations contacting us by either phone or internet. Most shelters attempt to notify "rescue partners" prior to euthanizing animals. We try to take in animals that have "run out of time" at other shelters or rescues. We also take in homeless animals from private citizens if the animal fits into our program and if we have space. These people find us through internet and phone directories and any rescue lists we are registered with
    • Education to the public to reduce the numbers of homeless animals - Provide education to help people successfully keep their pets and to help them consider if they are prepared to commit to a new animal prior to taking it on- we have printed an d e-mail versions of educational materials (articles and brochures) we give to potential adopters and people wanting to relinquish their pets. We try to educate and inform potential adopters so they fully understand the commitment and responsibilities that come with a new animal. Once they have the animal, we help trouble shoot any issues they might have. For instance, we help problem solve is a cat is house soiling, clawing on furniture, not getting along with the family dog, etc
