Fostering for the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, CA

Fostering for the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, CA

What is Fostering?
Foster homes provide an alternative to the shelter’s kennel environment for animals in need of more time and attention.  Foster homes provide the environment, special attention and time that shelter staff cannot.

Why Foster?
Many dogs and cats cannot go directly into the shelter’s adoption building due to health, behavioral issues or age.  Young kittens and puppies need foster care until they are 8 weeks old at which time they can be legally adopted.  Sick or injured animals need foster care until they are well enough for adoption.  In some cases, a foster home is needed to help an animal transition from the stress of having been abandoned at a shelter.
