Foster Parents/Foster Homes
Help us save more animals!
Consider being a foster parent for a dog, cat, puppies or kittens. We are a foster based rescue, which means that we do not have a facility. All the animals that come into the rescue are cared for in foster homes. We can only save an animal if we have a home for them.
FPALR pays for all the medical costs for the animal and provides all the supplies needed to get you started. You will also have the support of many fosters with lots of experience under their belt to help you and answer any of your question!
Fostering is typically a 2-4-week commitment per animal. Although if an animal has special needs, health challenges or is a senior, fostering can be a longer commitment. As a foster parent, you will need to make the animal available for adoptions events and or meet and greets, but most importantly, they just need you to open your home and heart and love them. It’s such a rewarding experience!
