Type of Foster Home:

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

Hopper is looking for an adults-only foster home where he would be the only pet, as he does not like to share toys or food.

Hopper is a smart and energetic dog who loves to go on long walks and always curious about new people. He would benefit from long play sessions regularly throughout the day to help him burn off some energy and also keep him mentally stimulated. He is a sucker for treats and loves to show off the commands he knows.

How to Foster Hopper:

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.

Hopper 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.
