Ever think about fostering an animal? We need you!!
The Gallatin County Animal Shelter is always in need of new foster homes! You can make a difference by fostering.
Fostering is the first step in giving an animal a second chance. For many animals, the process of being kept in an unfamiliar shelter and then going to an unfamiliar home is very traumatic. While in a foster home, these animals have a chance to feel safe, secure, and loved which will help prepare them for their new forever family.
What is involved in being a foster family?
- Providing temporary shelter and care for the animal. This typically ranges from a few weeks to a few months, but can be longer.
- Providing food and water. Food can be provided by FOGS
- Work on basic commands and housetraining if needed. Work on any issues that arise like shyness, leash training, jumping etc…. This will help the animal become a well rounded, happy, pet.
- Preparing a short write up of your foster animal with a few photos. This will be posted on our website to help give the potential adopters an honest description of the dog/cat.
- Bringing your foster dog/cat to adoption events is not manditory but very appreciated. If you cannot make it, we will have someone pick up the animal for the event and return him/her to you after. .
We can supply a crate(if needed), leash, collar, flea medication(seasonal), all necessary vet care, food and litter(cat), and any other supplies that may be deemed necessary for your specific foster animal.
