Welcome to Huey’s Rescue’s Foster Information page. For those of you who are new to the fostering process, it is an exciting and rewarding one in which you play a big part in giving a second chance at life to the unwanted animals at our local shelters.
Huey’s Rescue takes in animals who are in need from Animal Friends of the Valleys and Ramona Humane Society. The animals we focus on are:
Underaged Kittens and puppies (Bottle babies, orphaned litters or singletons)
Mommies and newborn kittens
Sick and/or injured kittens and adult cats
Mild behavioral cases (kittens and adult cats)
Adult Cats (all ages)
Adult dogs (all sizes and breeds)
Rabbits and guinea pigs (previous experience required)
Once you have been approved to become a Huey’s foster parent, you will be contacted by our foster coordinator when we have shelter animals who need a foster home. As part of the program, Huey’s will provide all the supplies you will need for the particular animal or animals you are fostering for us. Supplies include: food, formula, litter, litter boxes, toys, beds/blankets, carriers, toys, etc. We also provide all medical care for your foster animal(s). Medical care includes: routine exams, vaccinations, microchips, spay/neuter appointments, and care for any illnesses or emergencies. Our rescue works with four local vets who provide the above services. They are located in Murrieta, Menifee and Temecula.
For your part as a foster parent, we ask you provide a safe and loving environment for your foster animal(s). You will be responsible for the daily care of the animal(s), socializing the animal(s), and giving them all the love in the world until they find their forever home(s). When your foster animal(s) are ready for adoption, you will be asked to provide updated photos and write ups for the animal(s), so we can post them on our website as well as on Petfinder and Adopt a Pet. We are also adoption partners with Petco, Petsmart and Kahoot’s and will hold weekly adoption shows at one of the local stores where people can interact with the foster animals as well as the foster families. We also can arrange one on one meet and greets with approved applicants at one of our vet offices or at our rescue office. WE INCLUDE OUR FOSTER FAMILIES IN ALL STAGES OF THE ADOPTION PROCESS, so you feel comfortable with the new family who is adopting your foster animal.
The duration of a foster animal’s stay depends on the age or health status of the animal(s) you decide to foster for us. The younger animals will be spayed and neutered at 8-10 weeks of age (depending on their weight). Once foster animals are spayed and neutered and in good health, we will place them up for adoption.
If you feel you can make this commitment and would like to join our foster family, please fill out our foster application or contact Robin at firstname.lastname@example.org for further questions or information.
