Residents who decide to foster will open their home to a shelter pet for a few days to months. Fostering makes room for other animals to come to the shelter and allows animals to grow and heal from medical procedures, behavioral issues like shyness, and allow kittens or puppies to become old enough to be spayed/neutered before being adopted.
