FOSTER

Why Foster?

The easy answer is that it saves lives. Shelters can only hold so many animals. We all know the tragic result when they are at capacity. Rescues, such as One Love, “rescue” animals from overcrowded shelters and move them into foster homes. We also work with individuals that can no longer care for their pets. As a foster, you help an animal relax and feel safe again.

What if you can’t afford to care for a pet? Well, if you are a foster with One Love, all expenses are paid. That’s right, vetting, food, treat and toy costs are provided while you foster with us.

Afraid you can’t give them up to be adopted after caring? Unfortunately, there is always another to save. One of our fosters says that she saves three lives. The animal that was just adopted, the one that she can now save from a shelter, and the one that needs a spot in the shelter.
