Spot's Story

Type of Foster Home: 

We are looking for 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. 

Spot is a 6-year-old boy who is FIV+. He just recently had his back right leg amputated and is now recovering. He has a dental procedure scheduled as well, so he is part of our Help Me Heal program because he will need to make a few more trips back to our Medical Center before clearing for adoption. Spot is super sweet, vocal, and loves to cuddle.

How to Foster Spot:

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.

Spot is available for foster pick-up through our Medical Center at 3516 W. 26th St.

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.
