Help us save more animal lives by providing shelter for animals in need.
Our fosters provide temporary shelter for pets seeking a loving home. With limited space and staffing, we can only do so much at the shelter. Fostering a pet allows us to save more animals lives every year.
In many cases, the answer to this is YES. We offer this option whenever feasible for dogs and for kittens still weaning from their mother. We do not generally offer this option for most cats as we have found that adopters prefer to meet the entire cat crew to find the right fit, rather than making appointments to see specific cats. It is also quite stressful on cats to come in to the shelter for a short meet-and-greet appointment as they are usually more concerned about assessing the safety of the new environment and less friendly with strangers.
We assess each situation on a case-by-case basis as all fosters need to be able to provide appropriate, safe housing for the animal in their care. Due to potential safety hazards, we cannot offer a foster-to-release situation for animals exhibiting certain behavioral concerns.
None. We cover all necessary expenses including food, supplies, approved veterinary visits, vaccines, and spay/neuter.
Please make an appointment to bring the animal back to the shelter during open hours. Every placement allows us to learn more about our animals and what type of placement will be best for them.
Please contact PAWS of Grays Harbor. We will contact our vet if needed and set up a time for the animal to be seen. If you are not able to reach anyone at PAWS, please contact the vet listed on your contract and explain the situation. They will then contact us for authorization to treat. Any unauthorized treatment by a foster will be done at the foster’s expense.
Many times, the answer is YES. We do offer foster-to-adopt as an option on a case-by-case basis.
