Lend a paw to animals in need!

ARF's dedicated foster families save lives every time they open their homes and hearts to a homeless animal. Last year, more than 900 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens spent time growing, healing, and receiving much-needed TLC in a loving foster home. 

ARF provides:

  • Supplies (food, bedding, crate, toys, litter)
  • Support of full-time Foster Supervisor
  • Surgery, medications, and vaccinations
  • Full-service clinic to handle medical needs
  • Adoption services when your foster animal returns to ARF

Fostering is a wonderful opportunity to volunteer together as a family or care for a pet without a long-term adoption committment. Join us as a foster parent and start saving lives! 

Foster Orientation

Get the scoop on the joys of caring for dogs or cats, kittens, or puppies in your home and hear about the realities and rewards of fostering from experienced foster parents and ARF's Foster Supervisor at an Foster Orientation. Bring your concerns and questions to this free, no-obligation presentation and get started!

Continuing education classes for existing ARF foster parents are also available.
