About

Save a Stray goes to local animal shelters, those that euthanize, and removes some fine puppies and dogs. The dogs are vetted and fixed by Save a Stray. For two weeks, and two weeks only, these puppies and dogs need a temporary home. Dates are set. Through our partner groups, these dogs are transported to a town in New York and adopted. Sure, it can be hard to let go after two weeks but know that you have saved a dog's life and have sent that dog to a place where a good home is waiting. Every dog you foster allows us to save one more dog or puppy.

Fosters often get photos of the dog and their new famiy. It's very rewarding.

You decide what size and age of dog you foster. If it doesn't work well for your household, no problem.

Are your children begging for a puppy or dog? This is an excellent way to have one for just two weeks, enough time to see if they are up to the task of loving and caring for a dog or puppy.

When people say... "I could never foster because it would be too hard to give them up."

We say..."How could that be harder than knowing an animal died because no foster stepped up?"
