Fostering is a sometimes hard, but always rewarding experience. If you are new to fostering, we will go over many common questions and concerns with you before you decide to take the plunge. We will provide you with our Foster and Volunteer Handbook and go over all information with you before placing an animal in your care.

  • Have homeowner's or renter's insurance in which the adopted animal(s) would be covered. 
  • All members of your household must be in agreement to adopt a new animal. 
  • If you rent, be able to provide a written letter of consent from your landlord that you are allowed to adopt a cat or dog (letter must specifically state weight and breed of dog).

Foster homes are the backbone of any animal rescue; the more people willing to open their hearts and homes to helping animals in-need, the more animals we can bring into the rescue program. Not only do we appreciate our foster families, we depend on them. 

Fostering doesn't cost you anything but an open heart and open home; all expenses are covered by RHAR and any supplies you may need are provided for you.
