Short Term Fostering
Are you not able to commit to fostering long term? No worries, you can foster from just an overnight to a couple weeks.
Long Term Fostering
Long term fostering ranges from a couple months to however long it is until your foster dog gets adopted!
Are you not able to foster at this time? Definitely consider doing a day trip with one of the pups here at the shelter! Studies have shown that even giving a dog a night away from the shelter makes their stress level not get as high when they return. Photos and additional information you get will also help them find a home.
A day trip is taking a dog on an adventure out of the shelter. You can take the dog on a hike or to get ice-cream.. it’s up to you!
Call: Anytime! 267-385-3800 and press 3 (then press 2 for Foster)
In keeping with our lifesaving mission, ACCT Philly does require any cats or dogs a foster care provider owns to be spayed or neutered, assuming the animals are healthy and old enough to be safely altered. The animals should also be up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations.
