Healing and Comfort:Molly is a sweet and gentle dog in need of a loving foster home. She is a senior dog who is eagerly waiting to have a dental procedure done, but needs a temporary home while she waits for the appointment to be scheduled. Despite her age, she is still active and enjoys daily walks, fetch with tennis balls and spending time with her humans. She is friendly towards people and other dogs, but may need some time to adjust to a new environment. Molly has been spayed and is up-to-date on all her vaccinations.If you are interested in providing a loving temporary home for Molly, please contact us. Your support will make a significant difference in her life and help us ensure that she receives the care she needs while waiting for her dental procedure. Thank you for considering fostering Molly and giving her a second chance at a happy and healthy life.Email email@example.com
ABOUT ME: Hi! My name's Prince, but don't worry you don't have to bow down. I'm a down-to-earth kind of guy and I love making new friends. My hobbies include: playing with toys, doing little zoomies and rolling in the grass. I'm a big loveable guy, just looking for a home to live out my golden years. Want a big snuggle bug in your life with a big smile? I'm your man!FOSTER TYPE: Healing & ComfortFOSTER REASON: Don't call me old, but I need surgery to fix this messed up hip of mine! I am still a spring chicken, or... I think I am? I need a home to recover in once my surgery is completed. I am also being treated for heartworms, so I will need a calm home to relax in due to being under exercise restriction while undergoing treatment... I'll try my best to relax with you on the couch if you insist! My foster parent should be comfortable bringing me to the shelter periodically for scheduled vet appointments.DREAM HOME: I'm pretty open! I don't need a castle. Just a nice place with lots of love!KIDS: I'm a very excited boy, when it comes to making new friends. Sometimes I don't realize my size, so I should meet any kiddos under 12 to make sure we all get along. DOGS: I wasn't big on dogs in my last home, but maybe this time around? Please bring any other pups in my future home too!APPOINTMENT TYPE: Scheduled- fill out an online application to foster me.
ABOUT ME: Hiya! I'm Bella and I'm a sweet, wiggly girl! I love snuggles and booty scratches, but snacks, of course, are my favorite. I've never met a stranger and everyone is my best buddy. DOGS: Sure! Bring them in to meet me. KIDS: No problem! I love everyone. Please submit a foster application to meet me! SPECIAL NOTE: I'm available for foster to adopt.We also have Seniors for Seniors - If you are 65 or older and adopt a dog or cat over the age of 7 years, the adoption is free!
Give an animal a safe, loving home while they wait to be adopted. All adult dogs and cats are eligible to be Adoption Ambassadors! Adoption Ambassadors learn all about their foster animal and help our team match them with the perfect fur-ever home. Share photos and videos, promote your animal online and around town and tell potential adopters what you love about your foster pal. Average foster time: 2-3 weeks.
Some animals need a little extra TLC to prepare for adoption. Many of our pets come from Animal Cruelty Investigations, such as hoarding situations, neglect and abuse. With our support and guidance, you can help an animal learn about love, trust and good house manners, and you’ll be rewarded by watching them be transformed. Average foster time: 4 weeks to 3 months.
Bring an animal with medical needs into the comfort of your home to recover. The caring environment you provide reduces stress for animals who have been injured or ill, mothers and their litters or orphaned puppies and kittens. We provide you with the supplies, training and guidance, and you celebrate as your foster pet heals. Average foster time: 2 to 4 weeks.
Borrow a shelter dog to give a pup a chance to get a break from the shelter! Bring a shelter dog on a fun outing on a hike, to an adoption event, or to enjoy a pup cup. Spend a little longer with them for a weekend getaway or slumber party! Borrow-a-Buddy also gives us the opportunity to learn more information about the pet that can be communicated to their future home. Average foster time: a few hours, a day, or a weekend.
When an animal is unadoptable due to a medical condition or life expectancy, your home can provide a peaceful, loving environment for their final weeks, months or years. We provide all your foster’s medical needs and support to keep them comfortable, and you will have the gratitude of a special animal as you help them across the Rainbow Bridge. Average foster time: 3 months to several years.
To get started as a Foster Hero, fill out our foster application. Then our staff will work with you to determine what type of foster pet best suits your lifestyle and can benefit from your special kind of TLC.
We provide you with all the supplies you need, including crates, treats, food, toys, potty pads, pet gates and more.
Our staff will also go over your foster pet’s unique needs and conditions, as well as resources, training and other support to make your foster journey a great experience. We offer boarding as well as foster sitters for our Foster Heroes, so that they can go out of town and resume fostering their pet when they return.
Once you are signed up as a foster for the SPCA of Texas, you will receive foster requests, a foster newsletter highlighting our successes and be invited to join our Foster Hero Facebook group. Our Foster Heroes can also browse the pets we currently have awaiting foster homes and request to foster a specific pet.
If at any time a Foster Hero is no longer able to foster a pet, we will coordinate with them to bring the pet back to our shelter.
Some of our Foster Heroes fall in love with their foster pets and choose to adopt them. We can help with that too. Some people call this a “foster fail,” but we know everyone involved is coming out winners!
