Foster a pet, save many lives

Habitat 4 Paws relies on foster parents to provide the best and safest care for our rescued animals. All you need is to provide the love and care  to an animal in need and we will help you with the rest! For your foster we will provide a crate, collar and H4P tag for dogs, leashes, food, toys, and litter. All medical care, including vet visits, medications and monthly heartworm and flea preventatives, is also covered by Habitat 4 Paws. You’ll work with our intake coordinator to ensure your foster is the best fit for you, your family, and your home. And you’ll be able to be with your foster through the entire adoption process once they’re ready for their forever home!


The most rewarding experience for me is knowing I gave a pet a chance and then seeing them united with great families. Take a look at the video of Moose playing with his new dad that I recently received. How can that not warm your heart? It means the world to me as a foster mom to see how happy they are.
