A foster home is a home which provides a safe, temporary living situation for a dog or cat in need. The foster family provides accommodations, food, water, love and attention while the rescue pays for ALL the veterinary bills. It's just like babysitting a dog while you help them look for a forever home!
Dog foster families are expected to bring their foster dog to adoption events on Saturdays at the PetSmart at Westheimer and Dunvale (West of Galleria Area). Cat fosters are expected to keep the cats until there is room in our cat condo at our PetSmart (normally 2-4 weeks).
Houston Pets Alive only saves animals who are at risk of being put to sleep at the shelter, so by fostering you are saving a life!!!
If you'd like to foster dogs or cats, we'd LOVE to have you! Apply to foster at http://www.houstonpetsalive.org/foster.
