Fostering saves lives: Be a hero to a homeless pet
When you provide a foster home to an animal from Best Friends or a local shelter, you become part of a lifesaving team working to create a bright, healthy, and safe future for homeless dogs and cats around the country.
A shelter can be a noisy and stressful place, especially for shy and frightened animals. By providing a loving, quiet place for pets to learn and grow, you’re helping to alleviate the burden for a local shelter.
When you foster a pet, you’re helping to save even more lives by freeing up space in shelters for additional animals. So what are you waiting for? Snuggles, silliness, fun, and friendship await!

What to expect when you foster a pet
Fostering a pet is an easy, direct, and short-term way to make a lifetime of difference. It simply means temporarily opening your home to pets in need and giving them love and care while they wait to be adopted.
