We really appreciate your interest in fostering for Spark Rescue! We are a foster-based rescue and every person who opens up their home to a rescue animal is a lifesaver! The difference a foster home makes is instrumental in a rescue animal being ready to be adopted. By providing love and a secure home environment your foster animal’s personality will blossom. Being part of that transition is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. When you are ready to foster, together we will select an animal which will fit into your home and lifestyle.
We provide everything you need from leash to food and even crates or pens, if you need them. We will provide medical as needed (with prior approval). Most of our foster animals are adopted within two to six weeks. Please note that fostering does not automatically pre-qualify you for adoption.
