Foster homes allow Jasmine’s House to rescue dogs from a variety of situations by providing temporary care until they are adopted. Foster homes are asked to provide foster animals with plenty of love, adequate food and water, shelter from the elements, and exercise. Administering medication may also be necessary. In addition to providing the basics, foster homes may also be asked to transport foster animals to veterinary appointments and adoption events.
Foster homes play a crucial role in rehabilitating rescued animals. Those that foster are in a unique position to help abused or neglected animals learn how to love and trust again. Foster homes can help these animals become more “adoptable” by providing socialization and basic training. By teaching or re-teaching an animal how to live in a home setting, foster homes help increase the odds for a smooth and successful transition into a permanent adoptive home.
Jasmine’s House offers a host of support to our foster families including vetting, training, exposure for the dog and availability for any extraneous questions. Learn more here.
Jasmine’s House could not exist without the help of volunteers. We are always looking for volunteers to help with:
Examples of support needed are writing thank you notes, updating the web pages, creating brochures and posters, and record keeping.
Every adoption event requires volunteers and a lot of coordination. Responsibilities for this team include helping to set up tables and/or booths, attending the events, education of the public, clean up after the event, distributing brochures, and collecting donations.
Fundraising is needed to ensure Jasmine’s House has funds to run their program. Fundraising consists of sales of products (such as t-shirts) or coming up with new events to help procure funds.
We need volunteers who can help with transportation. Responsibilities include driving dogs to and from the veterinarian, adoption events, foster homes, and adopters homes.
