The goal of the APS foster home program is to allow animals more time to find permanent homes while providing them an opportunity for socialization and training, both of which greatly increase their adoptability.
APS strives to save as many animals as reasonably possible. However, it is important to note that the foster home program is not intended to warehouse animals, or to provide an opportunity for a trial adoption period.
As a foster home volunteer, you will be providing an essential service to animals in need, and you will also have a direct effect on the number of animals who are given another chance to find a loving forever home.
We are always looking for good foster homes. It is a very big responsibility and we ask that you attend at least two adoption events per month if you are fostering a dog and provide regular updates and photographs.
If you are interested in fostering please contact the Director of Community Outreach at email@example.com
Please note that to foster we ask that you become an APS of Durham volunteer
