Fostering is incredibly rewarding!
You are the first part of a new journey of love, care, and affection, and we don’t take the responsibility lightly! The length of time you can foster is as long or short as you’re able to open your home. Even if you can only keep a kitty overnight, you’re still an important part of their journey out of a shelter and into a forever home. Fosters do not pay for vet care, the rescue does. We can provide food, crates, and litterboxes/bowls. Any supplies that the foster purchases for a rescue animal are tax-deductible, so we ask that all fosters keep receipts.
The average length of stay in foster care is a mere 41 days. We strive hard to minimize their stay in foster care. We have 3 adoption centers: Pet Valu in Shelbyville and Franklin Township (Indianapolis) and PetSmart in Franklin.
