Here’s a look at what it’s like to foster a pet from The Animal Foundation.


The Animal Foundation’s Foster Care Program serves as a lifeline for underage, sick or injured pets who cannot immediately be adopted. Our foster Families provide quiet, stress-free, and loving environments for the benefit of pets not yet ready to be made available for adoption, allowing every pet that is fostered through our program a better chance at a happier and healthier life with a forever family.
