Without caring, open-minded, and patient homes to help transition One Tail animals into a home setting, our rescue could not carry out our mission or accomplish our goals.  As a foster parent, you are giving a rescue dog or cat a new lease on life!  By providing a temporary home for one of our animals, you are agreeing to care for that animal for 7 days or longer. If you submit a foster application and do not hear back within 72 hours, feel free to email [email protected] to ensure your application went through.

What does OTAT Provide?

Everything!  All we ask of our foster homes is to give love, patience, and understanding to their foster pet. In an effort to make fostering as easy as possible and ensure that our foster homes have everything they need, we provide the following:

  • Crate
  • Food, treats
  • Toys
  • Litter
  • Kong
  • Leash/Collar/Harness
  • Medications (when needed)
  • Training Support
  • Free doggie dog walking if you have longer work days
  • Temporary foster relief if you need to go out of town while fostering

As with our adoptive homes, we always try to the best of our ability to match the foster animal to the foster home. We will always take into consideration you, your lifestyle, and other members of your household, before asking you to foster a specific pet. All dogs and cats are temperament tested prior to heading to your home so we typically have a good idea of each animal’s personality and needs.

Who Can Foster?

Anyone! Whether you live in a condo, small apartment or a house, have children, cats, dogs, or other pets, we can find a temporary match for you. Fostering is perfect for animal lovers who already have pets of their own, people who have worked with rescues in the past (although this is not necessary), or just anyone who absolutely loves animals but is not ready or able to make the commitment for the life of an animal.

Similar to our adoption procedure, a separate Foster Home application and screening process is required. Please fill out our foster application by clicking the button at the top of this page and one of our Foster Coordinators will be in contact with you soon!

If you do not hear back within 72 hours, feel free to email [email protected] to ensure your application went through.
