Dude needs a Core Foster home. If you've had a pet or fostered before, you have all the skills you need to be a Core Foster. 

Dude is a sweet older gentleman looking for a foster home for the next few weeks to help determine how he does in a home setting.  He is suspected to have osteoarthritis and will require home with minimal or no stairs.

How to Foster Dude:

New fosters can take the first step by learning about fostering and completing the Foster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can email to schedule a pickup appointment.

Dude is available for foster pick-up through the Enrichment Center - 1968 N Racine, Chicago on Sunday, January 13th.  Book your pickup appointment by noon on Saturday, January 12th.


Why Foster?

There are many animals that need us today. Each foster family allow us to save more homeless pets by opening their home to a pet or litter in need of love and care for a few weeks. When we are able to send a pet or litter to foster, it frees up space in our Medical Center to bring in more pets in need.

Last year, our foster families took in 3,467 pets. Some needed a peaceful place to recover from illness or injury. Puppies and kittens just needed a bit of time in a home environment with good socialization so they could grow big enough to have their spay/neuter surgery before adoption. Other pets needed a calm and relaxing break from the stress of shelter life.

Consider joining them in lifesaving. Sign up to become a foster today.
