Thank you for your interest in becoming a life-saving foster parent for a homeless dog or puppy!
Fostering an Animal
Friends of the Animals is in constant need of foster homes— temporary living arrangement for the dogs in our program as they are waiting for their forever homes. Living in a foster home helps a dog develop confidence and sociability, ultimately making them more adoptable.
We are looking for overnight, weekend and long-term fosters. To get started, download and complete our Foster Application, and bring it to The Dog Adoption House (8476 Highland Road, Baton Rouge.)
You can also email your application or any questions you have to: FOTAfostersandvolunteers@gmail.com
Being a Foster
A commitment to foster can be for a day or two, or longer term, whatever suits your home and lifestyle. In most cases, fosters begin as overnight or weekend fosters.
Prospective fosters are encouraged to come to The Dog Adoption House between 11:30-4:30pm Monday through Friday or 11-2 pm on Saturday and Sunday to meet some of our dogs and find out more about fostering.
You don’t have to have any supplies– FOTA can provide food, bedding, a crate, and other items needed to tend to the foster dog. You provide the love and care!
