We do not discriminate against age, breed, or size and will work as a team to ensure that every animal who comes through our rescue has a happy ending in their very own forever home.

Before we can think about forever homes though, we need foster carers to provide temporary homes for these animals so they can learn who they are and how to trust again. We’re always on the lookout for new foster carers to provide temporary homes to pets prior to adoption.

Fostering is a wonderful and personal way to contribute to saving homeless animals. We supply all food and supplies required also covering all of the animals’ medical expenses.  You only need to provide your home, attention, and patience to your foster animals.

How long will I have the animal for?

This will depend on many variables such as age, health and temperament. Some of the animals we rescue come to us very timid and scared and in need of help to build their confidence. Foster carers gives these animals an opportunity to learn and trust again. During the foster period, you will have access to support from us and other foster carers through our social media pages and a dedicated support person to contact any time, including urgent contacts for emergencies.

Who pays for the foster dog’s vet bills?

Hope4paws Animal Rescue Inc will pay for all vet work (de-sexing, microchipping, vaccination, heartworm testing, and any other vet work) while the animal is in foster care. We also supply flea, tick and any other treatments as required.

Who pays for food and bedding?

We supply food, provide bedding, toys, leads and other supplies as required, for all animals in the foster care program.
