  • Friends of Homeless Animals reserves the right to refuse placement of any animal for any reason.
  • Friends of Homeless Animals has a need for both short-term and long-term fosters. To help you decide which is better for you, below is a short definition of each.

    SHORT-TERM FOSTER: A short-term foster either 1) has no dogs and can foster dogs we have just saved from a kill shelter (we don't really know if they have any illnesses that would be communicable to other dogs); or 2) has a dog, and can a) help with a dog who needs to recover from a medical issue, b) foster a dog while its primary foster is out of town, or c) take an owner surrender that we know is healthy and up-to-date on shots. The short-term foster usually fosters a dog for no more than a month at time.

    LONG-TERM FOSTER: A long-term foster will foster a dog that has 1) been at the shelter for an extended period of time; 2) is a senior; or 3) for other reasons as needed for an extended period of time. The long-term foster fosters a dog until it is adopted. If the dog isn't adopted, the foster dog lives out its life with the foster family.
