Foster a Shelter Pet
As an Open Door Shelter, the Animal Rescue League turns away no animal in need. This results in an overabundance of cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, and small animals, especially in the warmer months.
Approximately 10,000 homeless animals enter our shelter each year. Many are not quite ready for adoption and require the love and care of a foster family to prepare them for their forever home.
We depend on a unique and dedicated group of foster volunteers to help us save more lives! By fostering a homeless animal, you can experience the joys of being a pet parent without the lifetime of responsibility.
For more information on our Foster Program, contact Cleda Klingensmith at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 412-345-7300 x231.
