Our foster parents are a critical piece of the rescue process. Our ability to rescue depends completely on foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more lives we can save. AFP provides: training, vet care, guidance, and other essentials, as well as are responsible for finding the adoptive home. 

We carefully match up foster dogs/puppies and cats/kittens with foster families based on what works for your household.  We work with you to find the best possible match.

Keep in mind that a shelter environment followed by a rescue can be very stressful and traumatic for many animals. In your home they will have a chance to feel safe and secure, to be loved, nurtured, exercised and socialized. 

Foster animals may stay at their temporary homes anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. 

Foster family responsibilities include:

·       Providing care and affection - Including socialization and some basic training. 

·       Ability to transport your foster animal to and from adoption events

·       We require your foster dog to ALWAYS wear its ID tag.
