Tyrone's Story

Type of Foster Home: 

Tyrone 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.

Tyrone is from our Houston Tornado rescue mission. He is a spunky, high energy, 1 year old male that weighs around 38 pounds. Tyrone will need an active foster who can walk or run him throughout the day, offer enrichment or training, and give lots of play time! Tyrone is a great dog who just needs extra TLC to get him prepared for his forever home. He is housebroken and healthy. Tyrone would need to be the only pet in the home.

How to Foster Tyrone:

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.

You will need to pick-up Tyrone through the Medical Center at 3516 W. 26th Street or at our 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.
