Type of Foster Home: 

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

Flash is looking for a quiet, adults-only foster home. He would do well in a home with another calm, appropriate dog. Flash is shy and timid when entering new environments and meeting new people. Flash will need a patient foster who will allow him to acclimate at his own pace and will slowly introduce him to those entering the home. 

Flash may be shy at first, but once he warms up he makes himself right at home! He is independent and curious, but also very loving and will snuggle up to you at the end of the day. Flash loves a good walk and is known for his good manners when he is out and about!

How to Foster Flash:

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.

Flash is available for foster pick-up through the Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn Ave.

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.
