The Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance relies on its member rescue groups in a fostering network to provide temporary homes for the homeless dogs and cats rescued in our area. Rather than keeping animals caged in a large facility, animals live in foster homes until they are placed in loving forever homes.

CPAA’s member rescues have very limited foster resources and often must turn away animals in need because of a lack of foster parents. Good, loving foster homes are very much needed, and fostering might be right for you!

If you’re ready to begin fostering, click here to find out more about the process and fill out an application. Thank you!

Also – check out our Rescues page to reach out to our member rescues who are always in need of people and families to foster dogs and cats. Over time, more of these rescues will be providing links to their own fostering applications/info – in the meantime, you can visit their sites and find out more by contacting them directly.
