Fostering Information

What is a pet foster parent?

A pet foster parent provides temporary, in-home care for friendly puppies, kittens, dogs or cats until they are adopted.  In addition to affection, the foster parent provides basic care for the animals such as food, water, and shelter.  The pet foster parent is expected to take the pet to adoption events twice a month (held at St. Charles County area PetSmart stores)

How long is a foster period?

The length of fostering can vary from a few days to several months.  Volunteers are needed for short-term emergency fosters that may last a day or two, while other volunteers may choose to foster special needs pets or other pets who will take longer to find a forever home. 

What does it cost to foster a pet?

All veterinary care is paid by All Paws Rescue.  In addition, dog/puppy food and cat/kitten food is provided for the foster home.  Foster homes are responsible for supplying their own toys, bedding, and transportation to and from adoption events and vet appointments.
