Fostering

Dogs and cats make the best houseguests. They won’t drink your beer, you don’t need to give up your favorite pillow, and there’s no need for awkward morning conversations before you’ve had your coffee.

Kitten Fostering

Every year, Adopt & Shop rescues approximately 2000 kittens and we can save more lives with more fosters! Kittens need a cozy, quiet, clean space to thrive, and your home is just the right place for them in their earliest stages of life!

Adult Cat Fostering

Give a feline a break from our store environment. Our older cats need space to play and people to socialize with to give them the best chance in a forever home -- that's where you come in!

Dog Fostering

Want to add a pup to your home without the long-term responsibility? Foster instead! Help out pups with behavioral or medical concerns, or just provide extra walks and love!
