We are currently seeking volunteers to foster our longer stay dogs. Opening your home to one of these dogs will not only give them a break from the shelter, it will allow YOU to be their number one advocate! You won’t just be a foster care provider, you will be a photographer, videographer, biographer, a marketing specialist, and an adoption counselor, all while earning impact hours at a rate of two hours for each day that you foster. As an added bonus, many of our long stay dogs have been involved in our shelter playgroups, and been friendly with a variety of different pups – so if you have dogs at home already, one of these awesome shelter dogs could be a perfect addition!
To get started, please visit austinanimalcenter.org and click the "foster" button to complete the foster application online. If you are already an approved foster, or if you have additional questions, please contact the Foster Coordinator directly at email@example.com.
