We are looking for foster homes for incoming dogs and cats for the rescue. For every foster home that we have, we can save another animal! We provide everything you need including food, beds, medications, toys and vet costs. You just provide love, cuddles and occasional transportation if vet care is needed.
You choose the animals that best fit temporarily into your home and family. Some fosters enjoy puppies while others prefer older dogs. We have fosters that only take small dogs and others that want bigger dogs. We sometimes get pregnant dogs and cats in the rescue so experience with litters always helps!
Once you fill out a foster application (https://www.pawsacrosspittsburgh.com/foster-application) and it's approved, you will be added to the group and will see animals posted that need foster homes. If you see one that you are willing to foster, you can volunteer for that one. No pressure!
