Provide Foster Homes for Cats and/or Kittens at A Cat’s Tale

A Cat’s tale does not have a facility- all their cats and kittens are kept in foster care. The more foster homes they have the more cats they can save! Fostering is FREE- they pay for everything. Fostering is rewarding! As a foster parent you literally will be saving lives. You don't need a lot of space- a spare room or a bathroom are great places to start building your fostering skills. Give it a try they promise you won't be sorry!

Foster a Dog, Save a Life with Ace of Hearts

One of the best ways you can help Ace of Hearts is volunteering to foster a dog. For each new foster home that opens up, they are able to save the life of another shelter dog on death row. Opening your heart and home to a dog in need can bring you joy and the satisfaction that comes from knowing you've made a difference in an animal's life. Simply put, fostering saves lives! You provide the love and attention; they provide everything else! They provide you with food, treats, a bed, and any veterinary care the dog may need. If you are ready to make a difference and save a life by fostering an Ace Dog, please send an email telling them about your experience with dogs and your current situation, i.e., what hours you work, family pets, etc. to dogsfromheaven@aol.com. Please include a phone number where they can reach you!

Become a Foster Parent for the Brittany Foundation

Are you interested in having a dog, but maybe can't afford it or can't commit to forever? Consider becoming a foster home. As a foster parent, you will know the dog better than anyone, and you can provide valuable information to help place the dog. By fostering, you'll not only experience the joys of living with a dog, you'll be helping a Brittany Foundation dog find his or her perfect permanent home. Dogs in foster care still belong to The Brittany Foundation, so they provide food and veterinary care while the dog remains up for adoption. Since the dog remains available for adoption, foster homes need to be local to the Santa Clarita or San Fernando Valley, to make transportation to adoption events feasible.
