Becoming a foster parent is the greatest thing you can do to help save a dog. The more foster families we have, the more dogs that can be saved. Our waiting list is endless, and we get multiple requests daily about wonderful dogs desperately in need of our help. So many dogs kept at the shelter places a strain on our financial resources and does not allow us to give the time and attention needed to aid in preparing dogs for adoption.
We match each foster home with a dog that is the best fit to their family and lifestyle. Some foster parents prefer adult dogs, and some prefer puppies. We will place the type of dog you are looking to help the most, into your home.
YAS provides all veterinary care for your foster dog. We can also provide bowls, and other items if needed. Foster dogs can stay in foster care anywhere from a few weeks, to a few months, or longer. It is completely unpredictable when they might be adopted. We ask our fosters to be committed to their YAS dogs as they are their own dogs.
Foster homes need to be willing and able to provide frequent photos and personality updates on their foster dog. Great pictures are what capture the hearts of potential adopters. It’s great to provide opportunities for foster dogs to be seen by potential adopters. We appreciate our foster families who are show off their foster dog and meet potential adopters. This gives the dogs a better chance of meeting their forever family.
A foster parent's most important job is to provide a loving temporary home. For many of our dogs, a foster home is the first opportunity they have ever had to live in a safe and loving environment
