The purpose of our foster program is to help animals become more adoptable by living in a home where they can get the attention the need, and we can learn more about them. Fostering is a temporary measure for shelter animals. Therefore, their stay in a foster home may last from 1 week to 3 months.
As a Foster Family, you play a huge role in the life of your foster animal! To ensure that they find a wonderful Forever Home, we expect the following from you:
1. Weekly Updates – Pics, video, behavior and medical issues, adoption efforts
2. Monthly Zoom meetings
3. Assistance with Forever Home placement
4. Attendance at adoption events at least monthly
Read a copy of our Foster Contract for all the details.
You must be an approved volunteer before you can start fostering with us. Fill out this background check for the City of Waco to start the process. More details on volunteering can be found here.
