Fostering is the lifeblood of RHS because the number of Foster Homes determines how many pets we can save. This is our #1 need!
Our foster homes take care of the pets while they are waiting for their forever homes. All related expenses for the RHS pet are covered, including veterinary care, medications, food, bedding, toys, treats and crates. All you need to provide is LOVE!
Our intake coordinator works with you to find a foster pet that is a good match for your home. Normally, the foster home will transport the pet to our Meet the Pets events each Saturday, but transportation assistance can be arranged. Our Meet the Pets hours and locations are listed on our events page.
Foster homes must have an adult who is at least 19 years old and all pets in the home must be spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative.
