Be a Foster Parent
Fostering can be a very rewarding experience. We are in need of foster homes year round, but particularly in the spring, summer, and early fall
when many kittens are born. Volunteer foster parents provide temporary care for kittens, puppies, dogs, and cats. Some may need to be foster for only a week,
while others may need several months of care. By offering your time, energy, and home to an animal in need you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent
home and prevent overcrowding at the shelter. We work hard to match the capabilities of the foster parent with the needs of the animal. There are often foster
placements appropriate for those who work full time. It is essential that you be able to keep your foster animals isolated from any of your own pet.
A separate room, such as a spare bathroom or laundry room, will work best. If you would like to foster, please read and complete the Foster Parent Agreement forms
below. You may bring or mail the completed forms to the shelter.
Donations to FOSRAS are tax-deductible and go directly
to the animals. There are no paid positions within FOSRAS.
Donations may be mailed to : FOSRAS: PO BOX 8073,
Bridgewater, NJ 08807
Donations of your TIME are also valuable and an
important part of the adoption process. Trained foster
homes are always needed as are dog walkers, cat
socializers, and cleaning help.
FOSRAS meets every third Wednesday at the Bridgewater
library at 7:00pm. Please join us-all are welcome.
