Foster Care Information

MaxFund is looking for foster parents willing to foster animals in need of a safe and caring environment in which to reach their full loving potential. Animals in our loving foster homes are much easier to adopt because they heal more quickly from any existing injuries or medical procedures and don’t suffer from some of the more common issues found in shelter animals: 
  Obesity
  Depression
  Anxiety
  Fear of animals or people
  Other health issues related to stress
Please contact MaxFund to learn which animals are eligible for fostering. As with our adoption process, we ask all volunteers to submit a completed Foster Application (PDF or Word document) and schedule an interview with our Foster Coordinator. Because we accept all animals at MaxFund we match their needs with potential foster homes based on the following criteria:  
  Compatibility with other animals
  Compatibility with children
  Mobility issues
  Dogs must be leashed at all times while outdoors, unless they are in a completely enclosed, securely fenced area.
  Cats must be kept indoors at all times
As a foster parent your responsibilities include providing a safe and nurturing environment: 
  Providing high quality pet food, litter boxes, toys
  Commitment to follow integration best practices to insure the foster animal integrates with any other animals, children and/or spouses.
  Commitment to foster animal until an adoptive home is found.
  Commitment to help find an adoptive home for the foster animal which includes providing contact information and access to the animal for prospective adopters.
  Ongoing communication with the Foster Coordinator regarding any changes to animal’s health or behavior
MaxFund Animal Shelter will provide: 
  Ongoing access to Foster Coordinator and/or Vet Tech to answer any health or behavior related questions
  Vaccines, medications, collars and tags
  Prescription food
  Veterinary care (please contact the Wellness Center for clinic hours) 
  Emergency Veterinary Care by appointment and with approval of the Foster Coordinator
If you are interested in becoming a foster or would like more information on this program please contact our foster coordinators at fosteringatmaxfunddotorg  (fosteringatmaxfunddotorg)  .
