What’s a Five Star Foster?

Five Star Fosters provide a temporary home for APA! dogs that may be more challenging to place, many of whom might have behavior or medical needs that require extra patience, training and support. Austin Pets Alive! takes in around 5,000 dogs every year that are at risk of euthanasia in shelters that don’t have enough space or resources to care for them. Many fosters find it incredibly rewarding to work with these dogs and watch them transform as they learn to adjust to life outside of the shelter and heal.
