Foster home placement is taking the place of the traditional animal shelter nationwide as more and more communities opt to become "No Kill".

Placing animals into foster as soon as their mandatory hold time is completed frees up space for stray holding and mandated quarantine hold. Fostering reduces overcrowding and the dreadful need for euthanasia to reduce overcrowding.

Fostering also reduces greatly the burden on taxpayers in having to provide infrastructure, staff and other costs linked to institutionalized animals.

Fostering benefits the animals also by reducing stress, illness, and depression.
