Foster families open their hearts and homes to animals who are in need of temporary care outside of the shelter environment. These compassionate people play a vital role in the life of that animal and help to ensure successful adoptions. In short, foster families save lives!

Who Needs Foster Care?

Many of our dogs benefit from foster care for a variety of reasons, including:

Regardless of the need, the benefits are endless! Can you open your home to a Sunset Seniors animal and provide the temporary loving care they need?

What Do Foster Families Provide?

Foster parents are asked to provide supplies (treats, toys, litter, bedding), transportation and love, of course, for their foster animals. 

The length of stay in foster care can vary from a few weeks to several months, depending on the animal's specific needs. Homes that are able to take fosters on a consistent basis help out the most, but even homes that can take only a couple fosters a year can be a big help for the shelter's animals.
