Foster

Are you ready to become a foster parent?

DAWG is always in need of both short and long term foster homes. Not only does fostering maximize the number of animals rescued, it allows us to provide care for animals who would be difficult to care for in a shelter environment (orphaned kittens or puppies, animals recovering from illness or injury, special needs and senior pets), pets needing a break from the shelter environment, and yes, even hospice care.

Consider the following facts:

  • The Douglas County Animal Shelter consistently operates at FULL CAPACITY
  • Homeless animals come into our shelter year-round
  • The shelter environment is stressful & traumatic for many animals
  • When you foster, it makes room for the next animal in need
  • Fostering provides a safe, loving home until a permanent home is found
  • You will be matched with a dog or cat based on what works for your household
  • We provide guidance, supplies, & health management—you provide TLC!

So what do you think? Do you have room in your heart and your home to foster a pet in need?

If you’re ready or would like more information, call DAWG at 775-267-7325 and ask to have our Foster Coordinator contact you, or email our Foster Coordinator below.
