The foundation of Paws For Seniors’ operation is in our foster homes, where rescued dogs and cats,  get love and comfort while waiting for adoption. The more foster homes we have, the more dogs and cats we can save.

How it works

Fostering provides a temporary home for a rescued dog/cat until a permanent “forever” home can be found. It also provides time for a pet to adjust or re-adjust to living in a home, and to learn socialization and good manners. For some pets, the foster home also provides time to recover from an illness or medical procedure before he or she can be made available for adoption.

What foster parents do?Dog/Cat Fostering

As a foster parent, you’ll be responsible for the basic daily care for your friend in your home. In other words, your job is to shower them with the love and attention they need to prepare them for adoption into a permanent home. We will pick up the cost of any medical expenses and, in some cases, the cost of food and supplies. You’ll be asked to bring your foster dog/cat to adoption outreach events and medical appointments, and to introduce him/her to people who are interested in adoption.

Before taking your first foster dog/cat home, you’ll be assigned to a Paws For Seniors mentor, who will guide you through the program and help with any problems you may encounter.

For more information, see our list of foster responsibilities.

How long will a foster dog/cat stay in my care?

Time in a foster home can range from several days to several months. We’ll be able to give you a better estimate for your dog/cat before you take him/her home.
