OVERVIEW

"Fostering saves lives." It really is as simple as that statement alone. Foster families open their homes to pets that may

have been abused, neglected or just forgotten by society. They help those animals recover from emotional and physical traumas to become balanced and happy again. Living in a foster home allows those homeless pets to learn house manners, life skills, socialization and the ability to trust again. It prepares them for a successful and wonderful future in a forever home. Foster families are truly the unseen heroes of the rescue world. Misty Eyes is currently a 100% foster based program.  We will continue our foster program for special needs animals and others in need of this service even when our facility is built.  


Misty Eyes pays for all medical expenses and food.  We also provide all supplies you need to care for a pet in your home.  All we ask is for you to provide love, understanding and patience.
