A foster home is a temporary living situation for pets in our program while they await their forever home. Foster families provide shelter, food, care and love.


Animal Aid covers all medical care and medication needed for the foster pet. The length of time that an animal must be in a foster home can range from two weeks and up, depending on the situation.
