Frantically Seeking Fosters
We are in desperate need of fosters!!
Our foster homes are the backbone of our organization. Without them, we cannot function and continue to save these pups!
We currently have 2 dogs in boarding due to lack of foster homes, 2 more whose potential fosters have informed us they will be unable to take them in, and we have endless pleas asking us to take in more dogs who will need safe places to stay! If you have ever considered fostering for ETAA, now is the time!
If you have fostered for us or are having trouble with the application, simply email us at ETAA5@aol.com
Our immediate need is for 2 fosters:
Moses needs a foster home. Moses is a large dog and has come into our fold from the wonderful Humane Educational Society. He is 6 years old and has just gone through heartworm treatment. For this reason, he will need to stay calm.
Ralph is a 3 year old, medium sized Australian Shepherd. This gorgeous boy has also undergone treatment for heartworms and will need a calm, quiet foster home. He loves kids, but he is not fond of cats.
Please consider opening your home to one of our wonderful animals!

What is fostering?
Fostering a dog means that you are opening your home and giving a homeless pup a safe place to stay while it waits for its permanent family.
How do I foster?
Start by filling out the foster application on our website! If you don't hear back from us within a few days and want to follow up, email us atETAA5@aol.com.
ETAA is a foster-based rescue, meaning we do not have a shelter facility, and, so, we rely solely on the hospitality and generosity of our amazing fosters! If you can offer a kind and loving temporary home for a fur child, it satisfies a huge need.
Some individuals shy away from fostering a dog. The biggest reason we hear "no" is the dread of getting attached and having to let your foster pooch go on to a new family. We encourage potential fosters to keep in mind that they are saving a life. Without fosters we cannot pull dogs that would otherwise be put down. So as difficult as it may be, please consider opening your home to a temporary guest! Remember, by fostering and letting go, you are then freed up to save another life!
What is the time committment?
When you commit to fostering, this can mean you will have the dog anywhere from a couple of days to perhaps months. We would ask that you incorporate your foster into your family as if this was going to be your own pet. This helps so much in finding a forever home for the pet because you can enlighten us regarding the dog’s good points and areas that need work. The pet learns to be a part of a family making them so much more adoptable!
Does fostering cost anything?
No! ETAA provides all vetting, food, heart worm and flea prevention. We will also provide you with a crate if you are so inclined to work on “crate training” your foster dog. If you do choose to purchase food or anything else for a foster animal, it can be considered a tax-deductible donation to ETAA!
