Fostering is a wonderful way to help save lives by providing temporary solace for a family pet, or by helping transition a homeless pet from the shelter to a home environment. We run two foster programs.

Foster for OPIN

Our foster homes take in pets OPIN has rescued from shelters, providing them with a more engaging environment than a shelter could offer, until they can find their forever homes. Not only are you helping increase the adoptability of a pet by preparing him for a forever home, but you're also freeing up a space in a shelter for another pet in need.

Foster for the SafePet Domestic Violence Program

SafePet foster homes take in family pets of domestic violence victims on a short-term basis while the victim transitions between housing. Learn More

Ty: in the shelter versus in foster care. His smile tells all: strolling around his foster hood with buddy Marlon was a better fit for his pup energy and curiosity than the shelter was! Ty was adopted by his foster Mom who just couldn't resist!
