Foster a Pet

Pet fostering helps animals in need - and people, too!

If you want to do something to help animals, fostering can be a flexible, fun and rewarding volunteer job. Fostering with PetsEmpower can be even more rewarding. Here’s why:

  • PetsEmpower helps people in crisis by finding safe, temporary homes for their pets.
  • Fostering is a great way to enjoy a pet if you are not in a position to make that lifetime commitment right now. Fostering can be an excellent option for college students or military families.
  • Would you like to add a dog or cat to your household, but you’re not sure? Fostering can be a great way to find out.

Taking animals into your home, loving them, and then letting them go requires a special kind of person. Your role as a foster parent or family is to provide a safe home for the pet until it can be reunited with its "person."
