Yes. By becoming an approved foster provider, you are an approved adopter.
The program encourages and empowers foster homes to find adopters for their pets. However, it is not required, and the foster pets are welcomed back at the shelter to be adopted. Foster homes should be able to provide pictures of the animal and information about how the animal behaves to help the shelter match the pets with potential adopters.
Nursing cats and dogs and puppies and kittens are provided with food. Adult dogs and cats - due to their unique dietary needs - are not provided food. All vet care is provided by the shelter while it remains in foster care. Toys, bedding, litter and liter boxes, bowls, crates, etc are expected to be provided by the foster home.
Any illness contracted by owned animals is the responsibility of the foster parent and their own personal veterinarian. All foster animals are screened against certain contagious illnesses, and the shelter’s recommendation is to keep owned animals separated from foster animals to avoid contamination of owned pets.
