We NEED Foster Homes

Every year in our nation, animal organizations take in, care for and attempt to adopt out millions of pets who, through no fault of their own can no longer be cared for by their families, are born without an awaiting home, have been abused or abandoned, or are just lost, but have no identification and therefore no way back home.
Although precise data is not available, it is estimated that
6-10 million
American pets are taken in by shelters and rescue groups each year.

Of which, 3-5 million are euthanized as desperate and heartbreaking means, by often under funded and under staffed animal care and control organizations, to manage the overwhelming numbers of homeless and unwanted pets in our society. (data courtesy of www.palc.org)
You can help lower these numbers.

Become a Foster Parent!

Donít leave it up to someone else.

Fostering is the hardest job in rescue, but if you can do it, it is also the most rewarding. It is extremely difficult to take a husky into your home, treat it like one of your own and then give it to another family. If you think you have what it takes to give a homeless husky a temporary home, contact us or complete our online application today!
