Foster

Foster opportunities are on the rise for the dogs and cats in our shelter and we are grateful to those in the community who open their hearts and homes to Furry Friends in this special way!

Oftentimes, an animal comes to us requiring specific medical care or socialization and fostering allows the animal time to heal and flourish in a home environment.    Others, like kittens, are very young and need the more “hands on” care that a foster can provide.

WE ARE ESPECIALLY LOOKING FOR SHORT-TERM FOSTERS DURING THIS TIME OF NATIONAL UNCERTAINTY RELATED TO THE CORONAVIRUS.  Some things you should know:

  • All of the dogs available for foster in Jupiter are large dogs and many include mixes of the bully breed.  Please check your HOA or insurance requirements prior to submitting a profile.
  • We have no available small dogs in Jupiter at this time.
  • We will never tell you that an animal is completely housebroken or won't chew up something in your home.  These are always possibilities with any animal.
  • Feel free to check our website or call us prior to completing a profile if you are interested in fostering a hypo-allergenic dog.  They are typically a small percentage of our animal population.
  • We are seeking committed fosters who can give us several weeks of foster time as we navigate these unprecedented times.  If you encounter behavioral issues with your foster, we are happy to give guidance over the phone.

Fosters tell us time and again how rewarding the experience is for them. To learn more about fostering for Furry Friends, please complete the foster form below and email to:
