Here at The Foster Farm, we strive for happy tails. We believe in hope, humanity, hounds, and heroes. We believe in healing hearts and hands and pairing paws with people who love them.
While most of our animals have known some sadness or hurt in their lives, they deserve love just as much as any other animal, and we think you'll agree that rescue animals make truly wonderful pets!
Have you ever imagined what you could do if you ignored all the limitations imposed on you?
That's what my team and I are striving for -- to do the incredible, the impossible, the wild, the unimaginable, the awesome. We dream of empty cages, of fewer unwanted pets, and of more happy tails.
But how do we get there?
We grappled with this for a while, and then a friend's dream of living in a school bus became a reality for him. That's when it dawned on me -- we could buy a retired school bus, pull out all the seats, install a bunk bed frame, and drive around the country saving animals in high-intake shelters.

One of our biggest ongoing projects is the trap-neuter-return (TNR/TNVR) project for our local colony cats. In the last few months, we've spayed, neutered, vaccinated, and released over 45 cats! We've also been able to tame and adopt out quite a few kittens and one adult cat from these colonies as well. TNR/TNVR is a humane, safe way to manage feral cats who would otherwise continue to reproduce and damage local wildlife populations. To donate directly to TNR, please follow the link below!

Only one thing remains between Carmen and her forever home -- surgery to repair her in-turned eyelashes! Without this surgery, Carmen will have constant eye irritation and recurring infections until she eventually has permanent vision loss. We were quoted $785 for this.
For Cheese Poof, she needs a basic inguinal hernia repair before she can find her forever home, but the estimate for this relatively simple surgery is still a pretty hefty $450.
