Fostering makes a difference.

Fostering a rescued pet is a very rewarding experience! When REDCOLLAR RESCUE takes in a new dog or cat, they are taken immediately to the vet for "the works". This includes vaccines, spay/neuter, micro-chip, heartworm test (dog), feline HIV / leukemia test (cat), flea & tick medicine, and any other medical treatment necessary. Once healthy enough to leave the clinic, they need a kind and loving foster home while we search for the perfect forever home. The foster home provides lots of TLC and good food and treats for their foster pet. They also help teach proper manners, such as house-training, crate-training, etc. If possible, we ask the foster parents to help transport their foster pet to adoptions and to the vet for follow-up visits when necessary. REDCOLLAR RESCUE pays for vetting costs, but appreciates any donations that friends, family, or fosters wish to make!

If interested in helping a pet in need by being a foster parent, please complete the Foster Application and return to us by email at, by fax, or US mail. We will then contact you to discuss which furry kid might be right for you and your family to foster. Thanks for wanting to help a pet in need!
