Become A Foster Parent
Foster parents provide temporary homes for animals prior to adoption. Providing foster care is a wonderful and personal way to contribute to saving and improving the lives of homeless pets.
Why Do Pets Need Foster Care?
There are several possible reasons:
- Newborn animals that need to be bottle-fed, or mothers with nursing babies. Very young animals who are weaned but not old enough for adoption also benefit from the care of a foster parent.
- Dogs with mild to moderate behavioral issues who require some behavior modification and work, such as shy dogs who need socializing, and/or Long-time residents at the shelter.
- Some animals need time to recover from an illness or injury before adoption, and may need more attentive and personal medical care which can be more easily provided in a foster home.
- Short term care for animals who will be going to a rescue group.
Whatever the reason, these animals need some extra love and care before they can be adopted. Providing foster care for a week, a month, or more can be a lifesaving gift for an animal. To read more about the SPCA Cincinnati foster program and opportunities, click here.
