Foster A Pet

When you open your home and your heart to a dog in need you will discover how rewarding fostering is.


This noble deed takes a very special person willing to help a dog during the transition phase from the streets or the busy overwhelming shelters into a home. Rescue dogs need patience, love, consistency, training and support to regain confidence through a safe environment.

You will be helping us save lives by fostering a dog, giving us the opportunity to place a homeless animal in a secure place. It's one of the most direct ways to help save lives!

Fosters help immensely by:

  • Freeing up a spot so Paws for Life can take in another dog.
  • Giving your foster dog the time he needs to be ready for adoption.
  • Helping Paws for Life learn more about the dog so they can end up in the best home possible.
  • Socializing the dog to a home environment and possibly getting them used to being around other pets and different types of people.
