Become a Foster Home!

Broken Tail Rescue is primarily a foster based organization so many of the animals available for adoption live in our volunteers’ homes while looking to be placed. It’s because of this reason that foster families are vital to our organization and mission.

Fostering is sometimes a challenge, often fun, and ALWAYS rewarding as you will enjoy unconditional love, encounter amazing personalities, and learn a lot about animal health and behavior. Plus by fostering you will play an important roles in saving the life of a dog or cat that deserves a second chance.

Broken Tail Rescue will cover all of the expenses involved for food and medical care for your foster cat or dog. If you would like to learn more about fostering, please fill out our online foster home application.
