Lincoln Park

Foster Category: Socialization

Type of Foster Home: 

Jack 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. 

Jack is looking for a quiet foster home where everyone is over the age of 15. He would do best as an only pet. Jack is very shy and needs time to warm up to new people and environments. We are looking for a foster who can help him come out of his shell and build confidence. Due to his fearfulness we are looking for someone who has experience with timid dogs.

How to Foster Jack:

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.

Jack 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.
