Pet Network works to save the lives of as many animals as possible. A crucial piece in that goal is our foster program. Fosters temporarily house animals in their own homes and provide care to those animals.

Animals can go into foster care for many reasons, such as:
Illness/recovery from an illness
Reduce amount of time spent in the shelter
Pregnant/nursing mothers and their litters
Orphaned kittens and puppies
Animals too young for spay/neuter
Animals who need socialization
Animals with workable behavior needs
Senior animals

Fostering allows you to have the companionship of an animal, without the lifelong commitment of a pet--an option great for seasonal residents! Additionally, Pet Network provides the majority of essentials for providing care to the animals. This includes items such as food, medication, and litter/boxes. We also provide veterinary care to all animals in our foster program.
