Small Animal Foster

Save to Favorites


The MN Pocket Pet Rescue relies on people from the community to open up their homes to the pocket pets in our care because we do not have a shelter location. MNPPR provides everything you need to care for your foster pets including but not limited to proper housing, food, bedding, toys, and vet care. Fosters must commit to a minimum of one year of fostering. This is because we never know how long an animal may need to stay in rescue and it is especially stressful for pocket pets to be moved around.

Before you can foster any animals, you will be asked to answer questions on specific species' care, so be sure to check out our care guides! For more information, contact our Animal Care Manager, Amanda. We are currently in desperate need for foster homes that can foster guinea pigs or rabbits. For rabbits, we are looking for homes that do not currently have any pet rabbits due to RHDV2.

Specific job duties are below. Please visit our website for additional information.
  • Provides a temporary home for animals until they are adopted. 6 month minimum commitment.
