Fostering Opportunities

Animal Justice League is always looking for great fosters, we never know when an urgent need will arise!  If you are either new to fostering or just haven't fostered for AJL before, please fill out the Foster Application.

The types of foster you can sign up for are:

  •  Long Term – willing to provide long term foster care until the animal is adopted
  • Short Term or Temporary – could be a weekend, a week, or while the dog transitions from one place to another
  • Medical – for an animal requiring medical care outside of normal medications.  Previous foster experience is preferred, but not required
  • Emergency – when animal is pulled directly from the street,  it will immediately need a safe, quiet place to decompress.  This could be 24/48 hours while a permanent foster is found. 

Why foster an animal? 

COMFORT

In a home, you can help build an animal’s confidence and get them accustomed to a normal home life. 

VET BILLS ARE PAID

Vet bills are paid for by Animal Justice League.  If you can afford to, or would like to donate to their care, please consider doing so. 

SAVE SPACE AT THE SHELTERS

For every animal in a foster home, another space at the shelter opens up for an animal in need.  

SHORT TERM OWNERSHIP

It can be a great way to benefit from having a companion for those who cannot commit permanently.  Plus, if you’re thinking about getting a pet, it’s a great way to test the waters. 

SAVE A LIFE & HELP AN ANIMAL GET ADOPTED

An animal’s true personality, such as strengths and fears, good with kids or other animals, emerges in a home versus a shelter. Knowing the background can help us and the foster better match the animal with the perfect home or family.  

READY TO HELP? 

There’s many more reasons why fostering could be right for you, we just listed a few above.  If you’re interested in fostering, please fill out the Foster Application below.  If you have any questions, please Contact Us and we'll get back to you!
