Fos­ter­ing a home­less pet is one of the BEST vol­un­teer jobs on the planet!

One of the most need­ed vol­un­teer dona­tions in ani­mal res­cue is fos­ter­ing. We could not res­cue as many ani­mals with out fos­ter homes as we do not have a shel­ter to house our ani­mals. By plac­ing our ani­mals in fos­ter care in pri­vate homes allows us to ful­ly assess the ani­mal’s needs and require­ments. CROSS OUR PAWS cur­rent­ly has some amaz­ing fos­ter homes and we can’t thank every sin­gle one of them enough. How­ev­er, we NEED addi­tion­al fos­ter homes for ani­mals that are waist­ing away in shel­ters or unsuit­able homes. Fos­ter homes are bar none the most appre­ci­at­ed vol­un­teer ser­vice there is. If you would like more infor­ma­tion about our fos­ter pro­gram and would like an appli­ca­tion sent to you please email us at crossourpaws@yahoo.ca

CROSS OUR PAWS will cov­er all expens­es while the ani­mal is in your care (some excep­tions apply). Fos­ter home also has first option to adopt if the ani­mal is a per­fect match for your family.

What is a HOME VISIT?

CROSS OUR PAWS requests a home-vis­it with all our appli­cants and will not place a res­cue in the home with­out one. This vis­it is to ben­e­fit the pet as well as the home/potential own­ers. Many ques­tions are answered and any advice on how to improve the safe­ty of the home is pro­vid­ed as well as train­ing advice as each pet has dif­fer­ent needs and requirements.

CROSS OUR PAWS is in NEED of home-check­ers for out-of-town areas. Full instruc­tions and tuto­r­i­al is provided.
