Fostering saves the lives of cats and dogs in Atlanta
We are a community-based shelter, so foster homes are essential for saving lives in Atlanta. Our amazing foster volunteers give cats and dogs loving places to stay until they find permanent homes.
When you foster, you become part of a lifesaving team working to create a bright future for homeless pets in Atlanta and around the country. By fostering a pet, you're providing the love and care they need while they wait to be adopted. This helps prepare them for life in a home and alleviates the burden on shelters in Atlanta.
Fostering is an easy, short-term, hands-on way to make a lifetime of difference. Whether you open your home (and heart) to a dog, cat, puppy or kitten, Best Friends provides food, supplies, support and medical care — everything you need to ensure that your foster pet’s stay is a happy and healthy one.
