Foster an Animal

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A FOSTER?

Foster homes are private individuals who provide temporary care for Pasado’s Safe Haven animals in their own homes, giving these animals the extra time, training, or medical care needed until they can be adopted. The length of time that an animal must be in a foster home can range from two weeks and up, depending on the situation.

Fostering a shelter animal is a rewarding experience, but can also be time consuming and hard work. As a foster parent, you will provide your animal(s) with care, including training, socialization, and trips to the sanctuary for medical treatment when necessary.

WHY SHOULD I FOSTER?

If you are not ready to adopt, fostering is a great way to give an animal a warm, comfortable home while we continue to search for their forever family. A month in a foster home can sometimes make all the difference for an animal who needs some extra TLC.

Providing a foster home can help more than just the particular animal you take in. It frees up space at the sanctuary for us to save more animals from rescue situations.

WHAT SUPPORT WILL I RECEIVE FROM PASADO’S SAFE HAVEN?

We want to make this a positive experience for both you and the animal! Pasado’s Safe Haven will provide the food, supplies, and any medications needed. Animals in foster are promoted on our website and social media, but we also empower you, the foster parent, to help these animals find their permanent homes by giving them visibility in your community.
