Foster Family Program

“We find it richly rewarding to work with a foster animal, helping a dog acclimate and socialize with other pets in the home, eating side by side with other dogs, the experience and joys of riding in the car, snuggling on the sofa, and getting used to a normal lifestyle. We get excited to know that this animal is soon going to be placed in a perfectly suited home, and that makes our hearts happy.”

~Jerene, Foster

Our Animals Need You!

Fostering is a wonderful way to make BIG difference at Animal Care Sanctuary (ACS). By providing a temporary home for just one animal, you are creating room for another in need. You are providing the opportunity for positive growth in your foster animal’s emotional and physical well- being. Some animals are not equipped for the sanctuary atmosphere, preferring a calmer, quieter environment instead. When given the opportunity to live in this environment, the animal will become easier to adopt. Additionally, you are giving our animals reassurance that sanctuary life is temporary and a forever home is just around the bend. There is nothing more satisfying in life than knowing you are making a significant impact in life of another living being. Apply online today to join our team!
