To Foster or Not to Foster…


Fostering Pets

Our rescue needs foster homes for cats and dogs. We can’t save lives without YOU. (Thank you Great Pyrenees Club of WPA rescue for sharing this!) To Foster or Not to Foster… that is the question.  I think more people are able to foster than they themselves realize. Let’s address some myths, that tend to […]

Fostering Q and A


Fostering Pets

What is a Foster Home? A foster home is a temporary living situation for pets in our program while they are waiting to be adopted.  Foster families provide shelter, food, care and love.
