Become a Foster, Save a Life

"To foster an animal is a great GIFT and act of KINDNESS.

The animals hold a special place in your HEART and you make a world of DIFFERENCE in their lives!"

716 PAWS relies on our wonderful foster families to care for our rescue dogs and cats as they wait for their permanent homes. It is a very rewarding and fun experience for people who are not ready to adopt but want to help save a dog’s life. You are the critical difference between a dog making it out of the shelter and into their forever home or not- and that’s an amazing feeling.


716 PAWS is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization. Donations are tax deductible under IRS 501 (c)(3)
