APA SPCA Foster Care Providers
Many people have the heart, but not the means to provide foster care for pets awaiting their permanent home. The APA SPCA Foster Care Provider Program provides financial assistance to those willing to foster pets in their home.
Giving a second chance to a forgotten friend
Pet Foster Care Provider Program
With a priority on Domestic Abuse and Military Personnel challenges.
The APA SPCA Pet Pet Foster Care Provider Program is designed to greatly increase the number of available foster homes for pets awaiting adoption. It also serves to assure the foster home is a humane and positive stop on the pets way to its permanent home.
Traditionally a foster care provider provides a temporary home for animals awaiting adoption to a permanent home. The APA SPCA Foster Care Program also is addressing a different need. Many families are forced to give up a pet due to a job or living situation. They may have lived with their loved family member for many years, and have no desire to give the pet up.
An APA SPCA Foster Care Provider may care for a special family member pet for a period of time, until the family can take the pet back, or while the former owner and Foster Care Provider look for a permanent home. This program is heavily geared towards military personnel, families experiencing relocation issues, or a family crisis, and people in abusive relationships
You may also work with a local shelter or rescue group. The APA SPCA provides training for this activity and can also provide financial support to help pay for food and supplies.
Domestic Abuse Pet Foster Care
This very special program is to help support anyone that is a victem of domestic abuse. It is an unfortunate statistic that many people will stay in an abusive relationship for the sake of children or pets. While we are not trained to help in situations involving children we can help in regards to beloved family pets.
We can work with local and national domestic abuse organizations to help provide temporary and long-term homes for the pets of victims of domestic abuse. Through the fundraising efforts of our volunteers we can relieve the burden of the cost of the pets food and medical care for the duration of the foster care.
Military Deployment and Relocation Pet Foster Care
We live in challenging times for our military personnel. Overseas deployments, extended appointments and frequent relocation are all common occurrences. These are stressful times for our military and their families especially when a pet is involved. Often a family pet has to be given up and we feel this is something that should never have to occur.
This program will help find short-term and deployment length foster homes for pets when no other option is available. This way our servicemen and women can not only be united with their families when they come home but there companion animals as well.
Our fundraising efforts help find and train Foster care volunteers and when necessary can help with the costs of food and medical care.
Giving the time and love to a pet that will only stay with you a short time is a selfless and priceless act. The problem is that there is a price. The cost of food, medical treatment and necessary supplies can be daunting.
The APA SPCA Pet Foster Care Provider Program provides the following;
- Training of experienced pet owners to be prepared and capable of providing Foster Care.
- Financial Assistance to Foster Care Providers to cover the expenses they cannot afford.
- Humane Society Expansion Program to assist humane agencies with the ability to increase the number of pets available for adoption.
