Share Your Heart and Home
Every foster pet parent who opens their heart and home to a pet, saves that pet from further suffering. A foster pet parent takes in the pet as their own, loving them and caring for all their daily needs, while helping them adapt to a new home, new people and new environment. Foster parents assist the shelter by providing essential supplies for the pet. Lost Our Home provides transitional food so the pet’s digestive system can adjust to whatever the foster parent will be feeding them. Other supplies may be available upon request. As a foster pet parent, you will be encouraged to share the details of what you learn about your foster pet during your fostering experience. Vital information such as the personality or temperament of the pet is important to assist the LOH team know and understand the pet in your care.
When the need arises we utilize fosters for the following:
- Our Temporary Care Program (TCP) animals. Our TCP program lasts up to 90 days and the more animals in this program that go to foster homes, the more kennels we can open to new, adoptable dogs and cats.
- Dogs and cats available for adoption that don’t acclimate well to shelter life. These animals show off their personalities much better in a home environment!
- Kitten fosters: During kitten season (usually late April/early May to the end of August) we need fosters who can care for mother and kittens, and/or bottle feed underage kittens.
- Pregnant moms and nursing moms with puppies.
If you’re interested in becoming a foster, please complete the application. Thank you!
