Want to know if welcoming a homeless pet into your home is right for you?

Here are some frequently asked questions to help you decide if this opportunity is a good choice for you.

What is a Foster Parent?

A Foster parent provides a temporary home for an animal(s) until they are ready for adoption or transport. Foster parents care for homeless pets who generally are: Underage, Sick/Injured, or Behavior Modification/Socialization. Foster parents provide a safe space for animals like these to thrive and grow. Fostering a shelter animal requires hard work and dedication and is an incredibly rewarding experience.

Why should I Foster?

How long is the commitment?

Fostering can last anywhere from a weekend slumber party to a few days or a few months, depending on the needs of the animal. We always have a need for foster homes throughout the year.


What costs will I be responsible for?

Beaumont Pets Alive will provide veterinary care needed for your foster animal. This includes medications, follow-up veterinary visits. Foster parents provide shelter, food, care, love and transportation to and from the shelter for check-ups and medical care.
