What Foster My Pet Can Do for You
As a local independent non-profit organization with 501(c)3 status we help pet owners in distress by placing their companion animals in a temporary foster home for a limited period of time. In addition to our initial Foster Care program, we now also help owners with their pets's behavior issues with our Behavior Crew program.
Foster My Pet serves the greater Twin Cities area in Minnesota. To ensure that our precious funding is used efficiently, we limit our services to pet owners enrolled in the programs of local social service agencies or who are qualified due to a very low income.
Please review our website to find out whether our services offer what you are looking for. If you believe you qualify for our services, please fill out the following online application form. After we receive the filled in form, we will contact you to discuss your application.
Temporary Foster Care Program
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to care for, nurture and cherish your pet, so that you can be reunited after a few weeks of foster care.
If any of the aforementioned situations apply, and if you are troubled as you have a pet to take care of you might qualify for our program.
How does it work? Find out more from our Step-by-Step Procedure.
The Behavior Crew Program
Behavior problems are the single biggest contributor to pets being surrendered to animal shelters.
While some problems can be handled with a phone call to a knowledgeable person, far more can be satisfactorily managed with a visit from a behavior professional who can demonstrate—in person—humane and effective techniques to resolve problematic behaviors.
Foster My Pet’s Behavior Crew of veterinary technicians, dog trainers, vet students, and vet tech students provides in-home behavior consultations for people who need help managing the behavior and training of their pets.
All of Foster My Pet’s programs, including the Behavior Crew, available to those who are on some form of government assistance, or who qualify based on limited income.
Goals of Foster My Pet’s Behavior Crew:
The Behavior Crew will NOT deal with issues of aggression. Animals showing aggression to people or to other animals will be referred to the U of M Behavior Service.
All other behavior problems will be dealt with using up-to-date understanding of animal behavior and motivation, with positive reinforcement being our primary method of behavior modification.
