Foster parents provide temporary homes for rescued pit bulls prior to adoption. During that time, they do all the things that a dog owner does, so it is imperative that we match the dog to the foster parent’s capabilities, energy level, and other pets, etc. In order to have a successful program we thoroughly discuss these with the foster parents and provide guidance along the way.
The dogs we take into our program are the best examples of the breed as demonstrated by their easy going and affectionate nature but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are ready to go into a permanent home. One of the most valuable things a foster home provides during this temporary period is structure and life-lessons to the newly rescued dog. Your love, affection, exercise, daily care, socialization and basic training will help prepare him/her for a successful transition into a forever home and you will have truly saved a life.
We provide all medical care for the dogs in our program. In addition, we provide a collar, leash, tags and a crate. Whenever possible, we ask that the foster home provide food as it helps cut down on our expenses. When you need help exercising your foster our volunteers can help. We will also transport to adoption events and network the dog if you are unable and Angel City Pits will support you all the way through the foster process.
While fostering is meant to be a temporary situation sometimes foster parents get attached and a foster home turns into a permanent home. We totally understand; many of us have dogs of our own that started out as fosters! That’s why as a foster parent you will have first choice to adopt.
We also have a “pitten” program:
Fosters provide temporary homes until kittens are old enough to be spayed/neutered and adopted through our partner, Best Friends Animal Society, into loving forever homes. Kittens we pull from the shelters are between 4-6 weeks old and will be eating on their own (although some might need help at the beginning). The typical foster stay is between 3-6 weeks.
Litter size can range from a single kitten to a litter of five or more, but we do make sure to match you with a litter size you request. Kittens 4-6 weeks old need to be fed 4-6 times per day depending on age. We will provide you with all the supplies, instruction, scheduled wellness, medical care and support you through the entire foster process. You will be responsible to feed, track weight and general health, socialize and prepare your kittens for forever homes.
