With your help we can prevent the euthanization of innocent animals by rescuing them from over crowded shelters in Wake and surrounding counties. We work to protect, nurture, and find permanent homes for the animals we rescue.

We are always accepting applications for foster homes to love and care for dogs and puppies until their permanent homes are found!

Cause For Paws of North Carolina is a non-profit operated solely by volunteers with no central kennel or shelter location – our animals are all in private homes, so if it weren’t for our wonderful foster families, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

Just as we work to find the right foster dog for you, Cause for Paws also works hard on finding the right forever home for our rescues. Therefore, the fostering commitment can last from a few days to even months — just depends on the animal.

Please keep the following things in mind to help you and your family decide if you are willing to take on this commitment:

– Please provide care and affection for your foster such as socialization, healthy practices, and some basic training.
– Keep your foster dog on a leash at all times, even in dog parks, until you learn about their personality and social skills.
– We require your foster animal to ALWAYS wear its identification tag, to ensure its safe return should he/she get lost.
– We provide all necessary supplies, but always appreciate donations as well.

Thank you in advance for your interest in becoming a foster!
