Why Foster

By fostering a homeless animal, you are enabling RACC to have more kennel space to take in more local animals. Bottom line: the more foster volunteers we have, the more lives we can save. Fostering is an integral part of our organization’s mission. By using a devoted foster volunteer network, we can help animals that would otherwise not get a second chance at finding a forever home.

Foster Candidates

Foster homes for puppies and kittens are always needed because they have weakened immunities at young ages and until they’re fully vaccinated, they’re more vulnerable to getting sick. We also need foster homes for adult animals that are recuperating from surgery or are too shy to be adoption-ready.
