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!

Looking for a forever home or a temporary foster home! Blackburn is a sleek and shiny 2-year-old black cat with a super sweet and friendly personality. He was adopted from AFRP as a kitten, and returned to our care when his guardian could no longer care for him. Originally from the Salinas Animal Shelter, Blackburn was bottle fed in foster care as a tiny kitten, and he's grown up to be a happy, affectionate and athletic adult. He enjoys carrying toy mice around in his mouth, and he loves to find a tall shelf or cat tree so he can watch the world from on high. Blackburn loves people and is a fabulous companion, but he is anxious around other cats and dogs, and he needs to be a single pet in the home. His litter box habits are great as long as his person uses Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract litter and continues to keep him on Hill's Urinary Care C/D cat food. Like many cats, Blackburn can nip when overstimulated, and he'll do best in an adult household or with kids over age 10. Named for a variety of tropical Butterflyfish, Blackburn is ready to dive into your heart and home! He is looking for a forever home or a temporary foster home - let us know if you can help this wonderful cat! email dawn@animalfriendsrescue.org

Tigg is a friendly senior cat looking for a loving place to spend his golden years. He was adopted from AFRP as a kitten, and returned to our care when his guardian could no longer care for him. Like many senior cats, Tigg has kidney disease and he requires a special renal diet and subcutaneous fluids every two days to help him stay hydrated. Affectionate and full of personality, Tigg loves people but he'll do best as a single cat in the home, or in a home where he can be kept separated from other pets with the use of baby gates. AFRP supplies all vet care, food, medical supplies and support - you provide the love!
