Fostering: Where love meets second chances!

During life’s most challenging moments, the most healing companions often come with four legs and a wagging tail. At SPCA International, we understand the profound impact animals can have on our journey to healing and rebuilding. 

Our PAWsitive Recovery program is a unique initiative that goes beyond simply finding homes for dogs and cats. It’s about creating a nurturing environment for animals and those who need them most. When individuals are in the midst of addiction treatment or fleeing from domestic violence, their pets can be their most vital lifeline. This is where our fostering program steps in, offering a unique opportunity for these pets to find temporary homes and for their owners to focus on their recovery.

As a foster parent in our PAWsitive Recovery program, you’re not just providing a temporary home. You’re offering love, stability, and hope to these animals. Your role is crucial in this journey. Opening your heart and home provides a safe space for these animals to thrive while their owners focus on regaining their footing. 

The rewards of fostering go beyond the wagging tails and purring cuddles. It’s about the sense of purpose and fulfillment that comes from knowing you’re making a tangible difference in someone’s life. For those in recovery or escaping violence, the knowledge that their beloved pets are safe and loved alleviates immense worry, allowing them to concentrate on their own healing journey. Fostering can truly change lives.

So, if you’ve ever thought about fostering but hesitated, now is the time to take that leap! Join us in creating a community of compassion and support, one paw at a time. Together, we can make a world of difference—for both animals and people in need.
