The Foster Care Program

Fostering is a wonderful way to help rescued animals who are in need of special care and attention.

Our volunteer Foster “Parents” provide temporary care for one or more dogs or cats in their own homes until the animals are ready for permanent placement. By volunteering to become a Foster Parent, you will allow Honor Animal Rescue to help even more animals by freeing up space at either of our locations for pets that are ready to find their forever homes.

Generally, there are five different situations requiring a volunteer Foster Home:

1. Infant kittens or puppies that must be bottle-fed.

2. Underage kittens or puppies who eat on their own, but are not yet old enough for permanent adoption.

3. A nursing mother and litter who, by being in a shelter situation, cannot receive the attention they need to thrive.

4. Animals in need of lengthy treatment and/or recovery time.

5. Adult animals who do not take well to, or have spent too much time in, a shelter environment but still have the potential to be highly adoptable pets.
