Anthem Pets does not have a physical location. We can only save animals when YOU step up to help.
We need foster parents for the pets below.
Can you help?
Will I be driving around a lot?
That really depends. You are responsible for driving your foster to their vet appointments, and to adoption events. If you are fostering a brand new puppy or kitten, there may be three or four vet visits for shots and then surgery. If you have an older pet, there may be only one vet visit. We highly recommend that you do have access to transportation. If there is an emergency and you must get your foster medical care, you have to be able to transport them.
What expenses do you pay?
Anthem Pets does its best to provide you with food when you first start fostering with us. Sometimes we don't have what you need or we don't have a volunteer available to get it to you. We can either order it to be delivered to you or you can purchase it and we will reimburse you (usually through PayPal) The costs we pay are for the food, any vet visits and medication, any special needs like meducated shampoos. We have items that have been donated that we can also get to you. Things like toys, scratching posts, litter boxes, kennels, bowls and misc. other "non-essential" items. So the best idea is to communicate with your Anthem Pets contact before purchasing anything other than food or medicine. We have to be very cost conscious at all times and appreciate any items you can provide.
What if I fall in love and want to keep my foster?
That is the best question ever! The answer is easy. As soon as you have decided to keep the foster, tell your contact at Anthem Pets. You will complete the adoption forms and pay the adoption fee and the pet is now yours. If your foster still needs to be spayed/neutered, that is okay too. We will still complete the vetting process and pay for everything. We pay for the shots, microchip, and surgery even if you adopt before it is completed.
How long will I have my foster pet?
The short answer is - until they are adopted. We would love our fosters to stay in one home and then go to their forever families. Puppies and kittens usually spend the shortest time in foster care because they are more in demand. Senior pets tend to stay the longest. If you are in a situation where you can only foster for a short time, please be sure to tell us ahead of time.
Can I foster if I already have pets?
Only you know the answer to that question. If your dog or cat gets along with other animals, then you can try it. If you already know they don't, then it's probably a good idea to pass. We can also use emergency fosters. In that case, you can keep a pet for a day or two in a separate room or area while we find a long-term foster. So, if you want to help out, that could be an option for you.
