Foster-to-Adopt (FTA) Program

Ruff Start Rescue’s Foster-to-Adopt (FTA) program allows you to foster an animal for 10 days or until the animal is up-to-date on vaccines, altered, and ready to be adopted. Animals that are available for this program will have it listed in their bio.

If you decide to adopt, then you already have a head start on forming the one-of-a-kind bond with your new pet. If you choose not to adopt, we ask that you continue to let the animal stay with you until an adopter is found.
