Fostering is the perfect solution for animal lovers who are not ready for a long-term commitment, but love having a furry friend to nurture and love.
So many dogs and cats have been abandoned and surrendered due to the present day foreclosures. Some people move and simply leave their animals in the empty house without food or water.
One of our dogs was rescued by ladder from an upstairs porch when a good Sam heard a dog crying in his neighbor's abandoned home. "Lucky", as she is called now, was emaciated & dehydrated, being without nourishment for 3 days. She fortunately found her way to PAWS, and has thrived in her foster's care.
This is an opportunity for you to provide a loving, temporary home to these homeless cats, kittens, dogs and puppies until they can find their forever homes. PAWS will pay for spaying/neutering and all medical bills. We place classifieds on our website, pawsohio.org, which links to Petfinder to help locate permanent homes & then screen all applicants.
You can also choose to be a cage-break foster. We have cats/kittens in cages at PetSmart in Parma and Mayfield Hts. We like to rotate them so if you can take into your home a cat or kitten for 1-2 weeks, it is a great help to the fosters.
Please go to our website: pawsohio.org, and complete a foster home application. Applicants are then notified if accepted and given instructions as to what is involved in the fostering program.
