Foster dog/cat sitter while foster is on vacation

Save to Favorites

Almost Home Foundation

  • 61 people are interested

Most of our dogs and cats are in foster homes. During the summer months some of our foster parents go on vacation. We need 'dog sitters' to watch foster dogs/cats for a weekend or a week, when the foster parent is on vacation. Excellent opportunity for those who can help part-time but not commit to fostering an animal for weeks. If you can help, we will include you in a pool of 'dog sitters.' We will send requests for a dog sitter to you. You then get back to us. Fosters will contact you when they are making their vacation plans to make arrangements for you to watch their dog/cat.

Mission Statement

Almost Home Foundation is a nonprofit, all volunteer, no-kill animal rescue funded solely by private donations. We have no paid employees. Almost Home Foundation is committed to reducing the number of homeless and unwanted companion animals through education programs, spay /neuter programs, and the responsible re-homing of dogs and cats through adoption programs. Almost Home Foundation does not have a physical building to house animals. We rely on volunteers who dedicate their time, homes and hearts for our animals until permanent, loving homes can be found. Adoptable animals in our care will be kept as long as it takes to find a suitable home. Almost Home Foundation does not discriminate against animals based on age, breed, color of fur or physical disability. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the need to ever have a healthy adoptable animal euthanized.
