Animal Friends cares for more than 250 animals on our campus at any given time. And, we rely on our dedicated and compassionate network of foster homes to help us provide rescue and rehabilitation to so many more.

By offering specialized and around-the-clock care that’s not possible in a shelter environment, our fosters enable us to expand our care beyond the walls of our facility and provide support to more animals in need.

Our foster families provide a wide variety of specialized support to the dogs, cats and rabbits who come to Animal Friends for their second chance. Foster opportunities include:

  • Pregnant mothers or mothers with babies
  • Bottle babies or orphaned babies
  • Medical care
  • Behavior training
  • Cage breaks
  • Kennel space
  • Hospice care
