fostering saves lives 2 

If you are interested in opening your home and providing socialization and love to a shelter animal, fostering might be for you! Time commitments range from just a weekend, to a few weeks and possibly even several months, depending on your availability and interests.

Types of Animals Needing Foster 

  • Adult dogs and cats needing a break from the shelter. This can be anywhere from a couple of days to several months, depending on the type of pet and its particular needs.
  • Dogs and cats with special behavioral needs. Some of our animals lack socialization and training, and time spent in a foster home (one week to one month, or longer) working on obedience and basic skills can be lifesaving!
  • Neonatal kittens! They need bottle feeding every two to six hours, depending on their age.
  • Animals who are recovering from an illness, injury or surgery. If you don’t have any other pets, or, have a large, quiet area of your home, separate from other pets, we need you most of all for these types of animals! Having a quiet place to rest and recover makes a huge difference.


  • Access e-mail regularly and provide transportation to and from FBCAS.
  • Stay in contact with FBCAS and provide updates and pictures on your foster pet.
  • Provide food and supplies for foster pets.
  • At this time, FBCAS cannot reimburse expenses for medical issues with your foster.  If your pet requires medical attention, you will need to contact FBCAS immediately.
  • Have up-to-date rabies vaccinations for all animals living in your home.
