Paw Works depends on our wonderful foster families to care for our rescued cats and dogs as they wait for their permanent homes. We are so grateful for their help. With the growing number of abandoned pets coming our way, we are always looking for additional foster care providers.

If you’re willing to provide a temporary home and lots of unconditional love, you might be just what our next rescued pet needs. We depend on fosters for short periods as well as for extended care, such as when a pet needs ongoing medical treatment or rehabilitation. We especially need fosters for our pregnant dogs and cats, orphan puppies and kittens and occasionally for our special needs animals, including our sick, injured, hospice or elderly pets.

Fostering is a rewarding way to help an abandoned pet transition into his or her “furever” home. Please contact us directly to learn more about becoming a Paw Works foster at 805-852-1744 or at
