When you foster, you agree to take a homeless animal into your home and give him or her love, care and attention until the animal is adopted.
Our rescue organization does not have a physical shelter and depends on foster homes to care for animals until FUREVER homes are found. The number of animals we can help depends on how many foster families we have, so please consider opening your heart and your home to temporarily foster.
Fostering is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have (other than adopting, of course). By taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you help us in our efforts to rescue as many animals as we can from kill-shelters. Fostering benefits these animals by removing the stress of being in a shelter, which can be a scary place causing an animal to not let its true personality shine through. It also gives animals the socialization and time they need to be ready for adoption, in turn helping us to learn more about the animal so it will end up in the best home possible. Open your heart and your home to a foster and you won't be sorry... especially when you realize that without you, his/her life could not be saved!
Foster homes are held to the same standard that we ask of our adoption homes. We do a vet check to see that all animals are up-to-date on vet care. We ask past pet history and go to the home to visit your present dogs. Grassroots Animal Rescue covers the costs for all basic veterinary care including but not limited to spaying/neutering, vaccinations, worming, and tick/flea prevention. We do ask that our fosters cover the basic necessities (food, water, toys, litter), and most importantly lots of TLC. If finances are tight, we can assist with the essentials. We will place foster animals on our website, Petfinder, and Facebook. It is the responsibility of GAR to approve applications for adoptive homes before placing animals in permanent, loving homes. But we do ask foster parents input on how comfortable they feel in the adoption of their foster animals.
