Project Details

We are in need of temporary foster volunteers for dogs and cats in the state of Alabama. These are not rescues, these are the pets of domestic violence victims. As survivors flee for safety, we foster their pets while they find safety in emergency shelters themselves. Once the family is safe we reunite the pets with their owners.

Foster terms are capped at 60 days. We do not allow foster fails and you will never be asked to rehome a pet. Confidentiality is paramount and you will never have contact with your foster pet's owner. All medical expenses are covered, all you provide is food and shelter.

You have the opportunity to save lives. Not only those of an animal but that of the owner who is fleeing for their life and cannot leave behind a four legged member of the family.

If you can help please contact us directly.

We need fosters in all parts of the state.
