Fostering Opportunities (Currently Seeking Dog and Cat Foster Homes)

At Georgia Heartland, we are actively seeking foster caregivers who can provide temporary care for cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies within the comfort of their own homes. Some animals may require short-term fostering, while others may need a more extended stay. Fostering presents an excellent opportunity for families to volunteer together or for individuals who have a passion for pets but cannot commit to permanent adoption. Please note that our dogs typically weigh under 30 pounds, and our cats and kittens range from 1 month old to seniors.

What Georgia Heartland Provides:

  • All necessary medication and medical care
  • Food and litter, along with toys, beds, and crates
  • Comprehensive education on how to properly care for your foster animal.

What the Foster Family Provides:

  • A secure and nurturing environment for your foster animal
  • Socialization and love
  • Transportation to veterinary appointments as needed.
  • Transportation to adoption events or meet and greets as needed.

Fostering offers numerous benefits to both dogs and cats:

  • Socialization: Animals interact with people and other pets, enhancing their social skills and behavior.
  • Stress Reduction: Foster homes provide a calm environment, reducing stress levels, especially for anxious animals.
  • Individualized Care: Foster caregivers offer tailored attention, including medical care, diet, and training.
  • Improved Health: Animals receive prompt medical attention and have reduced exposure to illness.
  • Increased Adoption Opportunities: Animals showcase their personalities in a home environment, improving their chances of adoption, with caregivers offering valuable insights for the best match.

Please be aware that you may be requested to administer oral medication as part of the fostering process.

If interested, kindly reach out to us to learn more about how you can make a difference in the lives of these animals in need.

To advocate the humane treatment of animals through (1) rescue of abandoned, neglected, and abused animals; (2) a spay/neuter assistance program; (3) promoting community awareness through humane education and (4) initiation and support of positive changes in local community municipal codes and state law regarding animal protection . Many of the animals that become a part of our program would not survive without our help.
