Foundation Launches Program To Help Pair Rescues And Shelters With Foster Families


Love pets, but hate knowing that many are homeless? Want to help, but unsure how? The Eastwood Ranch Foundation, a non-profit animal rescue organization founded by actress/director and animal advocate Alison Eastwood, has launched a website which is designed to help connect shelters and rescue groups with a nationwide network of pet fosters and transporters.

The website helps enable animal lovers to sign up and immediately make a difference in the life of a homeless pet. Individuals who are interested in getting started can visit the website and create a profile which allows them to include the type of animal they would like to foster (including breed, age, temperament, and energy level). People who want to start fostering can also indicate how long they can commit to a “temporary” pet.

Alison Eastwood, Co-Founder of, stated:

“Being a foster is a great way to have a dog or cat without the expense and long-term commitment. Every pet placed in a foster home opens up valuable space for a rescue organization to take in another shelter animal.”

Rescue groups which sign up with supply food, beds, leashes, kitty litter and veterinary care – the people who open their homes to these animals in need do not have to worry about supplying anything other than love and a safe haven.

No room in your home, but still want to help? Consider becoming a pet transporter. Individuals who are willing and able to travel can pick up animals from rescue groups or shelters and deliver them to foster homes (or better yet, forever homes!). An added perk? You can even earn money doing this good work. Click here to learn more.
