Want an easy
way to make a difference?
Become a foster parent!
Foster home placement is replacing the traditional animal shelter nationwide as more communities opt to become No Kill.
Placing animals into foster frees up space for stray holding and quarantines in the shelter. Fostering reduces overcrowding and the dreadful need for euthanasia.
Fostering also reduces greatly the burden on taxpayers in having to provide infrastructure, staff and other costs linked to sheltered animals.
Fostering benefits the animals by reducing stress, illness, and depression, and creating opportunities for socialization with families.
Watch the video on the right to see if fostering is for you.
Stop by Petco Kemah and look at our adoptable pets. All have been raised in foster homes.
Or, come to an adoption event to meet fosters and ask questions about the P4P foster program.
What Pets Say About Fosters
Lost and alone, I was scared, cold and hungry, but my life was saved first by one foster for just a couple days, then by the foster who has me now. I'm ready for my own home."

Hearts of Gold
"We were part of a litter of six and that's not easy to handle for anyone, but our foster did just that. Because she did, we not only survived, we thrived.
Thank you, foster mom!"

Safe and Loved
"I had lived most of my life outdoors, scrounging for food. Tragedy struck and I suffered a broken pelvis. Most would have put me down, but the most wonderful foster who helped me heal, found someone who wanted to adopt me, and made me the feel loved."

I was desperate. My puppies were dumped in a trash bin and I burned my paws trying to save them. We were rescued and a foster took us in, fed us, cared for us, and showed us that humans can be kind. Because of a loving foster, we all have forever homes now.

"Kind & Loving"
When I was dumped on a road and left in a strange environment, not one, but two fosters saved my life. The first took me in and nurtured me. She allowed me to show what a gentle dog I truly am. The second helped by fostering, then adopting me.
I've never had it so good.

I followed my brother dog on a great adventure, and I was hit by a car. I fractured my pelvis and leg. Without a foster, I would have been put to sleep, but because someone cared, I was able to have the surgery I needed and am getting around well now.
