Available for Foster

Animal Friends Rescue Project does not own a kennel facility and relies on foster homes to care for the majority of dogs and cats in our care. Our foster volunteers are true heroes that provide a loving home environment for the animals that are waiting to be adopted. The more foster homes we have, the more lives we can save!  AFRP provides all the supplies you will need for your foster dog or cat, and covers all veterinary expenses.

The following dogs and cats need foster homes. If you are already an AFRP volunteer, please contact us and let us know which animal you would like to foster.

If you are not yet an AFRP volunteer, we’d love to have you join us! Once you have filled out a volunteer application and gone through a volunteer orientation and training session, you’ll be ready to foster!

 

REXI-WEB

Rexi

Breed: DSH Tortoiseshell
Age: 12 Years
Weight: 10 Pounds
Gender: Female

Rexi is a sweet senior cat that doesn't let her physical challenges get in her way. She is blind and deaf, but makes the most of every day.  She was examined by the veterinary ophthalmologist, and was diagnosed with retinal degeneration due to high blood pressure. She is not in any pain, and she was started on a medication to lower her blood pressure and prevent her eye disease from progressing. She is a loving, relaxed and trusting cat that just wants to relax, purr and snuggle. She spends her day napping, exploring, and enjoying petting and cuddles. Blind cats have a remarkable capacity to map out their surroundings. Rexi knows where her food, water and litter box are located. This amazing cat is looking for a safe, calm household where she can love and be loved in return. She will need to continue with her blood pressure medication and prescription renal diet. If you are interested in fostering Rexi, please contact Dawn@animalfriendsrescue.org for more information.

Ziggy-foster

Ziggy

Breed: DSH Brown Tabby
Age: 11 Years
Weight: 10 Pounds
Gender: Male

We are seeking a foster home for a senior gentleman that has been through a lot lately. He returned to our care about being adopted as a kitten, and his owner of over 10 years couldn't move with him. His whole world has been turned upside down, and on top of that, he has some skin/allergy issues that the clinic is working with him on.

Quick Facts: 

  • 11 years of age, neutered male
  • Receives an Rx diet for his skin (is only to be fed this diet)
  • He can become overstimulated with petting/touch so we are seeking an experienced home that will allow him to have his space.
  • He is a charming, sweet guy that loves to play, sleep on his cat tree, and generally just be a cool cat.
  • Seeking a home with no young children, and no other animals or the ability to keep him separate from other animals.

. If you are interested in fostering Ziggy please contact Dawn@animalfriendsrescue.org for more information.

Tyson-medical

Tyson

Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer
Age: 1 Year
Weight: 65 Pounds

One of our current foster dogs, Tyson needs a new foster home where he can continue to learn new things after his amputation surgery. He will do fine in a home with other compatible active dogs, and children over age 6. Tyson is friendly with all people, active/strong on leash, playful, and adjusting well to being a tri-pod. Experience with this breed would be a plus. Tyson has been progressing well with training, and we will be here to support his new foster through the process.  If you are interested please contact Dawn@animalfriendsrescue.org for more information.
