I am excited to announce that I have launched FosterFurkids.com with my rescue partner at Eastwood Ranch Foundation. FosterFurkids.com is a national database (website) that connects rescue groups and animal shelters with a nationwide network of pet fosters and transporters.
Pet fostering offers the perks of pet ownership without the cost and long-term commitment. When you foster a dog or cat, you are saving a life by freeing up space for rescues to save more animals in desperate need.
FosterFurkids.com makes it easy for animal lovers, who may not be in a position to adopt, to make an immediate difference. Rescues provide food, beds, leashes, bowls and veterinary care so it doesn’t cost a thing.
Anyone interested in becoming a foster can sign up to connect with rescues and shelters that need temporary foster homes. Users can set up their own foster profile and list their preferences including the type of animal they want to foster, breed, age, energy level and length of time they can commit to fostering. They can also select whether they want to be a volunteer or paid foster and set their own rates. Users can also search for available foster pets by zip code and browse pet profiles.
Pet transporters are also encouraged to sign up to help transport animals from shelters to their foster or forever homes.
Rescues and shelters can register for free to post animals that need fosters or search for fosters by geographical location.
To sign up as a foster or transporter go to FosterFurkids.com/ sign-up or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To sign up as a rescue or shelter go to FosterFurkids.com/sign-up-rescues-shelters or email email@example.com.
