Thank you for your interest in becoming a ASNN Foster Parent. A Foster Parent provides temporary care for animals in the Northeast Nebraska area. By offering your time, energy and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a forever home.
We currently have a facility but would utilize our foster families for extremely young kittens and puppies, animals that don't do well in a shelter environment (losing weight, stressed out all the time, etc.), or any other unique situation.
We believe that the abandoned and abused animals that come to the ASNN deserve to have the best possible chance at finding a loving, forever home. This includes those that may need a little more TLC than the average animal that walks through our doors. If those aren't enough reasons to become a foster parent, consider these:
Foster animals are temporary companions offering their love freely
You'll be helping to socialize an animal so they become more adoptable and better companions
You can put that spare bedroom to good use
You'll delight at the smiles on the faces of the Parent that adopts your foster animal and possibly make new friends along the way
Fostering helps you explore many different breeds of dogs and cats to help you decide which traits you'd like in your next companion animal
If for some reason you can't keep a full-time companion animal, fostering for short time periods is an ideal solution
You'll know that you're making a huge difference in the lives of your fosters - saving the life of an animal
We depend on your ongoing support to make sure the animals who come to us receive the care they deserve. Click here to learn how you can help!
Zero came to us in May 2017 and tested positive for Heartworms. Heartworm treatment is a long process and can have adverse side effects. Zero will be going through treatment until February 2018 when hopefully he will be heartworm free and can go to a loving home.
If you'd like to donate towards Zero's treatment, please click here!
The shelter is in need of items monthly to help keep the animals comfortable and healthy. Please click here to see a list of items we are always in need of!
