Fostering an animal can ABSOLUTELY save a life! Furry Friends Network has no shelter and is reliant upon a fostering network to provide temporary homes for our animals. Our animals are kept in foster homes until they are placed in permanent happy homes of their own. Currently, we have very limited foster resources, and as a result we often have to turn animals in need away because there is no one to foster them.
Foster homes provide the love and shelter while Furry Friends Network pays for the food and all medical expenses. A foster home is invaluable, because the foster parent gains insight to the animal’s personality to help us better match them with the perfect home. The foster parent needs to be able to transport the animal (as applicable) to and from vet appointments and our pet Adoption Days generally held on the weekends.
The average time an animal is usually fostered is several weeks; however, it could be as little as a few days or as much as a few months. Although we prefer the animal remain in one foster home until it finds a permanent home, we realize this is not always possible. So whether you can foster for a couple of days, weeks or months your services can be useful!
