Our Foster Program

Homeward Trails is a humane organization that puts animals first. If we learn of an animal in need, we will respond if we are at all able. Our Adoption Center can house at most 60 dogs at one time so foster homes are EXTREMELY VALUABLE to our rescue operation. The number of animals we can rescue is limited by the number of foster homes in our program. This is where you come in. The more foster homes we have, the more animals we can rescue. Thank you for showing interest in the Homeward Trails foster home program!

The Homeward Trails foster home program is a great way to help animals in need. By providing an animal a temporary home, the fosterer has given that animal another chance at life that he/she otherwise would not have had. The foster person’s job is not an easy one. Dogs may need to be housebroken or have separation anxiety issues. Cats may have trust issues and need socialization. Depending on the animal and time of the year, it could take anywhere from a couple of days to many months to find a new home for your foster animal.
