If you love pets and are willing to foster an animal until a permanent home is found…we NEED you!
Foster care allows pets to live in a home environment temporarily while awaiting permanent placement through the shelter. While Helping Paws does have a large shelter where the majority of the pets are housed, we do have circumstances that require animals to be in foster homes.
The animals we typically look to place in a foster home are pregnant dogs, young kittens that need socialization, or dogs and cats that are recovering from a medical issue or surgery. We also sometimes have a need for a foster for animals that have an emotional issue, a training need or one that has just been at our shelter too long, due to age or anxiety, and are not doing well in a shelter environment.
