We at Eastwood Ranch Foundation are proud to announce our new project FosterFurkids.com. This new website connects rescue groups and animal shelters with a nationwide network of people wanting to foster dogs and cats or transport them to their forever homes.
FosterFurkids.com makes it easy for animal lovers who may not be in a position to adopt, to make an immediate difference by being a temporary foster.
Anyone interested in becoming a foster can sign up to connect with rescue groups and shelters that need temporary fosters. Fosters can set up their own profile and list their preferences including the type of animal they want to foster, breed, age, temperament, energy level and length of time they can commit to fostering. They can also select whether they want to be a volunteer or paid foster, and set their own rates. The rescues and shelters provide the food, supplies and veterinary care, imparting no cost to the foster family.
Every year, millions of animals face uncertain futures in shelters. With so many shelters unable to keep animals for long because of constant new arrivals, fostering can mean the difference between life and death for these dogs and cats. Many pets that are euthanized each year may have been saved if there were more people providing a temporary home for them until they were adopted.
Rescues and shelters can search foster profiles by specific criteria or geographic location and send an inquiry to see whether they are available to foster a specific pet. After they have completed fostering a pet, rescues and shelters can write a review or endorse them.
Pet transporters can also sign up to drive animals from shelters to their foster or forever homes. Transporters can post their mileage rates and the distance they are willing to travel.
Help us save more lives and consider becoming a Foster today!
