Feel the Love. Foster an Animal.

Save a life! Taking a dog or cat temporarily into your home means it won’t be euthanized at the shelter. For more than 25 years, we’ve been giving great pets a second chance. You can help by being a foster.

How Can I Help?

  • You provide a safe, loving environment, regular feeding and fresh water.
  • You evaluate your foster animal’s behavior and attitude in your home, and keep an eye out for problems, especially aggression.
  • You work on basic training, such as housebreaking, manners, and socialization.
  • You take your foster to medical appointments and two adoption shows each month.
  • You meet potential adopters and follow up on applications.

What Does the PGSPCA Provide?

  • We help you select a foster animal that works for your home and lifestyle.
  • We screen and temperament-test for appropriate traits, behavior, and overall adoptability.
  • We provide veterinary care and can provide food, leashes, and collars when possible.
  • We have a strong support group of trainers, handlers, veterinarians, specialists, and other volunteers to guide you.
