Become a Foster Caregiver

With the help of foster caregivers, Anicira is able to give dogs a chance to live and be loved in foster homes while waiting for their forever family.  This life-saving program provides places foster dogs with caregivers during their stay with Anicira, as we work to find them new loving homes.

Why Should I Foster?

Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience and improves the lives of animals in a very direct way.  Whether you’re helping a dog learn to love and be loved, or helping them recover from illness or injury, thanks to your care and attention, fostering gives you the opportunity to change a dog’s life for the better.

Each animal fostered in our program is one less animal entering a shelter and one more being saved from unnecessary euthanasia. Fostering has a direct, positive impact on the animal and is a hugely rewarding experience for those who choose to become caregivers.

What requirements are necessary for fostering?

Anicira provides training, resources and materials to prepare you to care for a foster animal.  The team at Anicira will be there to support you every step of the way, and when it comes time, we’ll help you prepare to say goodbye to your foster charges when they go to live with their new family.

How long does fostering last and will it cost anything?

Foster time periods typically range anywhere from two weeks to several months, depending on the animal’s needs. Anicira gives all of our foster caregivers the food, equipment and supplies they need to care for their animals, and we cover all of the animal’s medical expenses, including medication. You need only provide your home, attention and love for your foster animals!
