Fostering

I would rather cry watching them leave our home to live a life of happiness and joy in a loving home, than cry because no one stepped up to help them and they died alone, frightened and sad in the shelter.

If you are here, we know you are considering opening your home to foster animals! Pawsitive Match is always on the lookout for families to welcome in a foster cat or dog. Fostering is a very rewarding and educational experience, and a great way to get some hands-on experience with pet ownership. By placing our animals in homes when they arrive, we are able to get them accustomed to family life while we find them the purrfect home.

Pawsitive Match Rescue Foundation relies upon its foster family volunteers to

  • Provide love and care for the foster animal in preparation for their adoption
  • Arrange meetings with the potential adoptive family
  • Transport their foster animal to vet clinics for necessary health care
  • Transport their foster animal to adoption events

In return, Pawsitive Match Rescue Foundation provides our foster families with

  • All the necessary supplies (food, litter, toys, shampoo, etc.)
  • Around the clock support via email and phone calls
  • A sense of community among other foster families and volunteers
  • Training support, as needed
  • You must be certain that your own pets will accept and get along with foster dogs or cats. You must also ensure your pets are up-to-date on their vaccinations prior to taking in foster animals.

    You can read more about what to expect as a dog foster at TheFunTimesGuide.com.

    A special thanks to all of our fosters as we wouldn't be able to do what we do without you!

    Foster of the Month

    Foster of the Month - Ross and Judy

    My name is Patches McBlot, I’m the cute one in the middle. I live with Ross and Judy and we got nominated as fosters of the month by Pawsitive Match! We started fostering orphan puppies for them a year ago and boy have we had puppies, 11 litters of pups so far and oops, one sick kitty too.

    We love working with all the volunteers at Pawsitive Match. Everyone is so helpful and dedicated to the welfare of the animals. Pups are in such great shape when they go to their new homes: they are spayed and neutered, vaccinated and have none of those pesky worms. And if they need more expensive stuff to help them get healthy, Pawsitive Match is there to make sure it happens.

    We think that species, age, location and circumstance should not be barriers in animal rescue. Pawsitive Match has active rescue programs, they have volunteers at all of the Spay and Neuter clinics and they have an active SNAP program. We believe in all the same things!

    We get to meet most of the puppy’s new families. It is so much fun seeing how excited people are to have a pup join their life. We’ve been to puppy reunions, had puppy play dates, and get updates about them on the Pawsitive Match Facebook page so we have really enjoyed knowing that each of those little guys have a wonderful and loving home.

    Thanks Pawsitive Match…and I can’t believe we fostered a kitten.
