BECOME A FOSTER HERO TO ONE OF THESE ANIMALS

Fosters needed for these pets;

Lucky Charms is a funny, playful, and curious little male puppy. He's used to being around kittens, cats, puppies, and large dogs with no issues. 

Lucky is a sweet boy who is going to be a bigger dog someday. He is not aggressive and is very much a puppy learning the world around him. 

We think he will be best suited in a home with some older dogs that will continue to teach him "the rules".

Mama cat of the  4 babies in other picture.

Sky is an extremely smart, funny, and brave puppy. She is used to being around other dogs, big dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens. We think Sky is a mix of several working cattle dog breeds. She will definitely need a home with plenty of daily stimulation for her. She is learning potty training. Sky loves toys and will play until she drops.

Become a Foster

Can you love and nurture a pet until we find it a forever home?

 

Fosters, along with Volunteers, are the reason why our rescue has been able to save thousands of pets since 2005.

Foster families provide temporary care for adult cats, kittens, adult dogs and puppies. Some animals need as little as a day or two in your home, while others may need care for an extended period of time. Your help as a foster is essential to our success. By offering your time, love, energy and home to an animal in need, you will save their life and prepare them for adoption into a permanent home. Anthem Pets does not have a facility and we rely solely on foster families to care for animals that enter our system. We are always looking for more foster homes – our demand is growing every day!

Quick Info on Fostering

  • LOVE your foster

    Your job as a foster with Anthem Pets is to show that pet love and care for them like they were your own pet. You don't need to train them to do tricks, or even basic commands. You aren't training a service dog, or a show cat, they don't need to be "perfect", they need to be cared for and loved. 

  • We don't know their past

    Most of the time, the pets coming to us are found, abandoned and surrendered. Remember that we don't know their past traumas. So it is always the best policy to NOT take the dogs to a dog park or on walks. We don't know how they will react to other pets or people. 

  • Pictures, pictures and more pictures

    As a foster you are responsible for providing great pictures of your foster. We also love short videos. We need these pictures and videos to help get your foster adopted. Take pics, take videos and send them via text to your Anthem Pets contact.

  • A great bio

    In addition to pictures, a great description of your foster will get them adopted. Tell people all about your cool foster cat and how he sits with you while you work, or the funny things your foster dog does. People read the pet descriptions because they are looking for a fit. Please be sure to include all the important details. like if they can get along with kids, cats, dogs or are afreid of men, things like that.

  • Take it slow

    When you get a new foster and have other pets take the introduction slow. You may want to isolate the new pet for the first day to let them decompress a little bit. It is incredibly stressful for a cat or dog to be lost, found, transported, and transported again. They are scared and that's alright. Take your introductions slow. Most of the time it will be fine, and if we already know the pet does not get along with cats, dogs or kids, we tell you up front.

  • Assume every dog is NOT housetrained

    Puppies are not housetrained. When we post for a puppy foster, assume that they are still not house trained.

     

    If we post for a mature dog, we can tell you they are doing a good job where they are, but things may change when they get to you. It is always safe to start with the assumption that they will need a little work. So, please don't place your new dog in a room on your thousand dollar new carpet until you get to know them.

  • Be honest about any issues

    If you are fostering a pet that is having some behavioral issues and it hasn't gotten better with time and attention, you need to let your Anthem Pets contact know. We can arrange for training and evaluation or even a medical exam. We want to help you so the pet can be very adoptable. Please communicate with us so we can work together.

  • Be sure your pets are up to date on vaccines

    If you have pets in your home and are thinking of fostering, please make sure your animals are all up to date on their vaccines. This is especially important if you are going to be fostering puppies that may have an illness we don't know about. Older dogs that are current on their shots are usually in no danger.
