There’s Never Been a Better Time to Foster a Pet.

We need emergency fosters nationwide to host a cat or dog for 2-6 weeks.


The coronavirus pandemic is creating an animal sheltering crisis in the US. Many shelters are being forced to close, more families are surrendering their pets, and adoptions in many places are slowing – making countless homeless pets at risk of euthanasia. By fostering a pet today, you will save a pet’s life. And bring a little joy to yours.


How You Can Help.

The time for action is now – the window of opportunity is closing to help shelters evacuate their pets into foster care before it’s too late. And we need your help. Foster, donate or share the hashtag #StayHomeAndFoster. Together, we can get through this.


Becoming an emergency foster saves lives and provides proven stress-relief for you and your family. And with so many people working remotely, self-isolating, or otherwise just staying home, there’s never been a better time to foster a pet.

Become an Emergency Foster.

Please fill out the form below and we’ll connect your information with a shelter in your area. When you’re matched with a pet, you’ll hear from the shelter directly to finish the process. It’s easy and it makes a difference. For everyone’s safety, many shelters are offering foster pet delivery or low-contact pickup. #stayhomeandfoster
