Become a Foster Family

Another great option if you are considering adopting a pet, or just love animals, is to become a foster family.  Pause 4 Paws regularly receives requests to help place animals, so we are working to build a foster network.  If you are interested in fostering, please send an email to jennifer@pause4pawsmn.org and we will get the process started!  

In addition, most of our Beneficiary Organizations and Partners do not operate physical animal shelters, rather they rely on the support and dedication of volunteer foster families to care for and give a temporary home to the animals while they are awaiting adoption.  Most rescue organizations will cover the cost of food and any needed medical care for the animals while they are in foster care. Visit their websites to fill out an application to become a foster family.
