A foster home means that you would provide a warm, loving home for a sweet senior to lay his head until we can find a forever home for them. You would provide love, a temporary home, and medication if needed. It can take a few months to find them homes, so you would need to be able to provide that time. We do have temp fosters that do vacation fostering if you are going out of town. So no need to worry about what to do with your foster if your headed for vacation.
For more information about fostering, please go to our website at http://angelsonwheels.org/fostering-animals/
Fostering is very rewarding especially for a senior, who has spent his life snuggled in a bed with a family only to find himself/herself, sleeping on a cold concrete floor waiting for someone to help him. Some make it out and many do not.
Angels On Wheels Animal Rescue will provide food, pay for all of the medical, and provide you with a play yard or crate if you need it. You must be able to drive your senior to one of our vets in Joliet, Naperville or Oswego. Every senior is different and may require more then what we routinely do which is spay/neuter, Senior blood profile, heartworm test, testing for all three of the tick transmitted disease, microchip, DHPP vaccination, rabies vaccination, and many times a dental.
If you love animals, and can provide a warm, loving, safe environment until a forever family can be found, please, please submit a foster care application form which can be found at http://angelsonwheels.org/foster-care-application-form/. It is an on-line form, and once received we will schedule a home visit. All dogs and cats in the resident home must be spayed in order to foster. You can also find us on facebook under angels on wheels animal rescue.
Please consider fostering a senior, your home means a life saved. Thank you!
