How can you help?

Volunteering with SAIN rescue is a compassionate way to make a positive impact on the lives of animals in need. By offering your time and skills, you can help with tasks such as feeding, walking, and socializing animals, as well as assisting in administrative and outreach efforts. Your contributions can extend even further by making financial donations, which provide essential resources for medical care, shelter, and food. If you're ready to offer a forever home, adopting an animal from a rescue not only transforms their life but enriches yours as well. Additionally, fostering animals temporarily can be a crucial lifeline, providing a safe and nurturing environment for animals on their journey to finding permanent homes. Whether through volunteering, donating, adopting, or fostering, every action you take supports the tireless work of animal rescue organizations and creates a brighter future for animals in need.





Fostering and Adopting from an Animal Rescue

What is fostering?

Fostering an animal refers to providing a temporary home and care for an animal until a permanent adoptive family can be found. It involves opening your heart and your home to an animal in need, offering them a safe and loving environment. Fostering plays a crucial role in the animal rescue community, as it helps alleviate overcrowding in shelters and gives animals a chance to thrive outside of a shelter environment and in a home.


When you foster an animal, you become their temporary caregiver, responsible for their basic needs such as food, water, exercise and shelter, as well as their emotional well-being. You may need to administer medication, provide socialization, work on basic training like sit, stay, etc..., and ensure they receive veterinary care approved by the Rescue. Fostering allows animals to heal from physical or emotional trauma, gain confidence, and learn valuable life skills, making them more adoptable in the long run. All approved veterinary care, food, and necessary supplies are provided by SAIN Rescue for our animals.

Why Adopt from an Animal Rescue?

There is no replacement for good, loving care for the animals in a home. Fosters and Adopters are needed. Kill shelters and local animal control facilities are full of adoptable animals. SAIN Rescue helps by partnering with local animal controls and kill shelters to pull these animals and find them loving forever homes. Adopt Don't Shop. Buying from a pet store only helps perpetuate the puppy mill industry where money is most important, and the animals are treated inhumanely.

These animals have all been rescued and adopted out by SAIN Rescue since October 18, 2023
