Foster homes are critical to the mission of Community Animal Protection Association (CAPA). We seek to place dogs and cat coming into our rescue into responsible foster homes so that they can become ready for adoption. Often, these animals need extra TLC.
All these dogs and cats need is someone to spend a little time with them and to advocate for them at adoption events. If you are able to make the commitment to guide a dog or a cat (or a litter of puppies or kittens) into a forever home, please fill out the Foster Application and return it to us.
While fostering is a temporary situation, it is still a commitment.
Before deciding to foster, please understand all of the responsibilities
that comes with temporarily caring for a furry one.
What are the Responsibilities of a Foster Family?
- Provide a safe, clean, caring environment
- Provide food, water, litter, toys/enrichment, and shelter
- Provide exercise and socialization as appropriate
- Monitor any medical and/or behavioral problems
- Transport to/from any necessary vet appointments
- Transport to/from offsite adoption events
CAPA attains the right to deny an application of a potential foster parent or retrieve a CAPA animal currently in foster, if at anytime, we feel that any of the responsibilities listed above are not being met and that the CAPA animal is not in a healthy, safe environment where their needs are not being met.
