Open your home to the joy of fostering!
The rewards are great. Yes, it takes a very special person to be a foster. These animals work their way into your heart and then, you have to let them go. If you have the strength to do this, you are rewarded ten-fold by the knowledge that you give your charges, these innocent dogs or cats, a chance at life. HOPE relies almost entirely on fosters for our rescue activities. We are always looking for new recruits as there are always more animals in need of rescue. Several local shelters often contact HOPE when they have animals with poor prospects in the shelter for any number of reasons. In some cases, when we are unable to accept these animals due to the lack of available fosters, they are euthanized. Take a look at our "Available Dogs" and "Available Cats" on our website. All of these animals have HOPE fosters to thank for their new lives. We quite literally could not save these animals without you. Please consider fostering for HOPE.
