Foster an animal and save a life!
Foster parents provide
temporary care for cats, kittens, dogs and puppies in their own
Lewiston/Clarkston area homes. Some animals need as little as
one week of care, while others may need care for 2 to 3 months.
Fostering is flexible enough for most
lifestyles and Helping Hands Rescue will match the animals to each
foster home. By offering your time, energy and home to an
animal in need you provide a
safe and loving place for the animal to stay and prepare
the animal for adoption into permanent homes. Helping Hands Rescue
is always looking for more foster homes.
How Foster care works
Helping Hands Rescue provides all the veterinary care and
medicine for foster animals, pet supplies if needed, food and plenty
fo support to foster parent volunteers.
Foster parents provide their time, a place in their home and
lots of love!
When Helping Hands Rescue receives word of an animal in need we
contact foster parent volunteers with information on the animal in
need (breed, age, health, background) and try to send a photo of the
animal to the volunteers. There will be plenty of other
opportunities to foster so there is no pressure to take the animal.
Foster parents generally pick up the animals at a local vet after
they have been vet-checked and received any veterinary care that
they need. At that time volunteers receive information about the
animal's condition and needs. Foster parents may need to bring the
animal to Petco adoption events on Saturdays from 10Am-3Pm. Foster
parents are not required to stay for the adoption event.
Because a foster parent will get to know the foster pet more than
anyone else the foster parent can provide useful information to
potential adopters to find the best fit for that particular animal.
