Our all-volunteer organization was founded to help rescue homeless animals, and support local animal shelters through fostering in the Sacramento area.
Fostering homeless animals benefits them by providing a nurturing environment, which relieves stress and makes the animals more adoptable. Additionally, fostering relieves pressure on the shelters by enabling these often under-funded facilities to take in more homeless animals and provide needed care.
People who foster animals often find tremendous personal reward by saving lives and transforming homeless animals into new family members.
We are here to support and encourage more people to experience the reward of fostering animals, and promote volunteer and donation opportunities.
Fosters and Paws is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to promote the welfare and rescue of homeless pets and provide fulfillment for people through pet foster care while supporting community shelters.
We believe that this is the most important part of what we do! Animals in foster care tend to be less stressed, better socialized, and have a lower chance of getting sick than animals in shelters.
Through our Foster program and even our Adopters we try to teach everyone something. The more you know about an animal the better equipped you will be handle things as they come up. We are always here to support our Fosters and Adopters!
These animals have been in loving homes. Our Fosters spend lots of time with their foster animal and help them know what a loving home is.
