Foster care is temporary care provided by responsible, compassionate and caring adult volunteers for WCFA cats and dogs until they can be adopted to quality homes.
Providing a good home environment with proper socialization, exercise and loving care gives our foster animals a better chance of being placed more quickly.
We do not operate a shelter and rely on our foster homes for the success of our adoption program. Being able to place dogs and cats in foster homes allows us to increase the number of animals we can rescue.

WCFA will provide food, litter, crates, bedding, toys and other items as needed for the animal while it is in your care at home. The foster parent is responsible for transporting the foster animals for vet appointments as required.
You will be expected to keep the foster animal safe and secure; return it to WCFA when requested to do so; not promise the animal to anyone or imply that you have the authority to approve a potential adoption. WCFA retains ownership of all animals placed in foster care and will make all decisions regarding the adoption and placement of the animals fostered.
Foster services performed by an individual are voluntary and are without any express or implied promise of salary, compensation, or payment of any kind.

I agree to give care and shelter to a rescued dog for a limited period. I understand that I am accepting this dog as my own, until a new home can be found. I also understand that W.C.F.A. may have no prior knowledge of the dog’s temperament, and I will therefore take all due care to protect myself and others who may come in contact with this animal.
I will indemnify, defend, and hold W.C.F.A. harmless from damage to property, or harm to persons or other animals caused by this rescue animal.
I also understand that W.C.F.A. will be responsible for all veterinary care necessary for this animal while it is in my care, only if prior authorization for any such care has been given by a member of W.C.F.A..
