Animal Safe Haven does NOT have a facility. We rely on families like you to open your homes and hearts to these rescued animals in need and help us help them. We can work with most any living situation, family type and schedules to make sure that the animal you foster is happy as well as you!
Thank you so much for your interest in fostering pets for Animal Safe Haven & Adoptions, Inc. By opening up your home to foster pets, you’re not only helping to save lives, you’re providing the individual attention and love these cats desperately need.
Once you have completed your foster application on-line, our foster coordinator will get in touch with you to schedule with you a home visit.
Our cat foster program is designed to help kittens, adolescents and adult cats alike get a second chance at finding a home — a chance they would not have received at a shelter. Many of the cats who are with ASHA have come off the streets and are in need of foster homes that can provide extra care and attention, which a typical shelter often don’t have the staff or resources to provide. But in a loving foster home, every cat can get the individual attention he or she needs to find a forever family.
Care for foster cats includes feeding according to size and needs, and lots of play time and positive socialization.
Although fostering is a lot of work, it is a very rewarding experience. By participating in this program, you are saving lives and helping many different types of cats find the families they’ve been longing for. Through fostering, we can work together to Save Them All.
ASHA WILL provide:
ASHA CAN provide if needed:
Yes. The foster application is designed as a survey to help the foster coordinator match you with the best animal for your needs and your current schedule. If you have a full-time job, the foster coordinator will match you with a cat who may be OK alone during the workday. You would then just need to provide ample attention to the cat before and/or after your workday.
Yes. We require that all foster cats be kept indoors for the duration of their stay in foster homes, so a fenced yard is irrelevant.
We only want the animals that are comfortable with going out in public to go to the adoption events. Unnecessary stress on the animals is not something we ever want to put an animal through. When a rescued animal is ready for adoption events we will try to make sure he or she is able to attend as many as possible, thus ensuring more time in the public eye and having a better chance with getting adopted! Currently with COVIC-19 we are doing minimal public adoption events. Our main way of spreading the word about the rescued and adoptable pets is by social media so we ask our foster families to take plenty of cute videos and photos to post up on our ASHA Facebook page and please share that with your friends and family too!!
Unfortunately, ASHA cannot sign off on court-ordered community service hours for fostering. Community service is supposed to be supervised work, and fostering is unsupervised, since it takes place in your home. If you need community service hours, on-site volunteering is an option at one of our foster families, at adoption events and fund-raising events. Contact us to begin volunteering!
