Foster an Animal

There are no more important volunteers to our rescue group than those who open their homes to our animals. These wonderful souls give these formerly abused or abandoned cats and dogs love, gentle care, and a safe haven, something most of them have never known.

If you foster for BFPA, we will provide medications, flea-tick preventative, heartworm preventative (for dogs), crates, collars, leashes and ID tags. BFPA will schedule and pay for any and all vet appointments for your foster cat or dog. Food will occasionally be provided in special case-by-case situations.

If you are interested in fostering a BFPA cat, here are our requirements:

  • Cats must be fostered exclusively indoors.
  • All personal pets must be UTD on vaccinations and sterilized.
  • Fosters must be able to transport their cat to and from our vets for appointments and Meet and Greets for adoptathon events.
  • Fosters must allow potential adopters (who have submitted an adoption application which has been approved) to visit their foster cat, preferably in the foster home, and by appointment only.

 

If you are interested in fostering a BFPA dog, here are our requirements:

  • Dogs must be kept indoors the majority of the time with outside privileges for exercise and bathroom duties.
  • At no time is a BFPA foster dog to be tied out, chained or allowed to run free.
  • Dog fosters must have a secure, fenced yard, exercise area or be willing to leash-walk.
  • Puppies may not be crated for more than six continuous hours.
  • All personal pets must be up-to-date on vaccinations, sterilized and personal dogs must be on heartworm preventative.
  • Fosters must be able to transport their dog to and from our vets for appointments and Meet and Greets for adoptathon events.
  • Fosters must allow potential adopters (who have submitted an adoption application which has been approved) to visit their foster dog, preferably in the foster home, and by appointment only.
