Save a life! Take a homeless pet into your home for a few days, weeks or months.
We are a foster based organization. Each animal needs a temporary home, a foster home. The amount of time ranges from a few days, a few weeks, or a few months. You foster for as long as it works for you.
Cats can be fostered for any amount of time. Dogs/puppies need a home for exactly two weeks. Take care of the pet as you would your own. Save a Stray takes care of the vet bills, using donations. Fosters usually provide food and litter. Any supplies you buy for your foster are tax deductible.
We often hear, "I could never foster. It would be too hard to let them go." Is it harder than knowing a fine animal died because no foster stepped up? Sure, you do get attached and it hurts a little when you let them go, but that's what will make you a good foster. Once you see the adoptive family's excitment, you will know the true gift of fostering.
It's a great way to try out living with a pet in your home, if you are considering adopting. If you have children, fostering a pet can help teach them about caring for animals.
If you work full time, no problem. Most pet owners work. Any amount of time with you each day is better than being in a stressful shelter.
Worried about having enough space? Cats can be kept in a kennel, a bathroom or laundry room. In fact, a small space keeps them safe as they adjust to a foster home. Many of them are recovering from spay/neuter surgery and need a confined space while they heal.
Our homeless animals come from kill shelters, some are abandoned, some are strays.
