Fostering saves lives and spreads joy!
Virden Pet Network doesn't have a shelter building. So we rely 100 per cent on our volunteer foster families. If you're thinking about becoming a foster parent, here are the basics you need to know:
You must be 18 or over to foster
You can request a specific pet but our top priority is matching you up with one whose personality and needs suit what you can offer.
VPN will pay for everything your foster pet needs: food, litter, medications, veterinary care.
At VPN, we LOVE foster fails! If you fall in love with your foster baby, let us know and we'll walk you through the adoption process.
