We provide a network of fosters to help shelters and rescues scale their capacity for care, finding good homes for adoptable pets.
We find the best foster caregivers across the United States. They should have prior experience fostering multiple animals, know how to handle common challenges (e.g. house training), and (ideally) have a regular presence on social media platforms.
We’d still love to work together! Through our network, your fosters will learn how to tackle the challenges of fostering from the best-of-the-best. This will reduce foster burnout, foster turnover, and the number of questions your staff needs to answer.
If you need us to help you free up capacity, we’re always there, to support as much or as little as you need.
We work with you to find trusted transport partners you feel comfortable with! If you have an existing network, we are happy to make them our "first choice" transport partner. We also have our own partners, developed through partnership with Doobert, as well as vetted and trusted contractors.
In the case of a failed adoption, we will first direct the pet to the foster. If the foster is unable to take on the pet at this time, we will work with you to find an appropriate solution.
We’ve built a platform to showcase each and every adoptable pet in their best light. On each pet profile page, we’ll put your shelter front and center – and as more fosters join PetPair and post about their pets, they’ll become more aware of your shelter and its impact. We also empower and encourage fosters to share – 78% are willing to to share stories and content, with encouragement from us!
Yes! We run all foster and adoption outcomes through our 501(c)3 organization.
We do have a venture-backed, for-profit arm, so sustainability is not an immediate concern! That being said, we plan to earn revenue through affiliate marketing efforts targeted toward the adopter.
We conduct background checks on each and every foster, coordinate transport of pets between shelters, fosters, and adopters, and ensure transparency of outcome for our shelters.
