Become a Foster
The PETSinc fostering program is an extension of our Vet Clinic. Foster families provide our veterinary staff extra support and vital care to pets going through a stressful or emotional transition, surgical recovery, special needs medical care in need of a quiet place to heal, or a mom and her babies experiencing brand new life together. We do not foster for the public – only animals accepted through our intake procedure who are then our legal responsibility. In exchange for short-term housing and transportation of fostered animals, we provide necessary veterinary care, food, linens, and loan carriers/pens, kiddie pools, and other supplies. Fostering can be a greatly rewarding experience for the entire family.
WHAT FOSTERING DOES:
- Helps de-stress and socialize pets in preparation for adoption
- Teaches a pet he/she is loved and can trust humans
- Helps us create assessments for better and lasting adoption experiences
- Teaches your kids benevolence
- Helps save a life by opening up shelter space for another rescue
For younger animals, like kittens or puppies, foster arrangements are usually just a couple of weeks to one month.
For older animals, finding the right family adoption can take a little longer.
Always connect with us first. PETSinc is responsible for all veterinary fees and will see the foster pet at our clinic in most cases.
If you take the foster animal to an outside pet without our permission, we are not responsible for those costs.
PETSinc will cover all veterinary fees (at our clinic), pet food or formula, puppy pads, syringes (for feeding kittens and puppies), and medications.
We understand that sometimes emergencies arise and will work to take in your foster while you are unable to.
