Foster Family Application

foster homes

PACT Foster Homes can be any shape or size, and we do not require a fenced yard. We DO require that Foster Homes pass our 3-step Home Check Process:

  1. Fill out the Foster Family Application (below)
  2. A Veterinarian-Check that verifies all pets in your home are healthy
  3. A personal Home-Check by a PACT Home Visit Volunteer

If you live more than 1 hour away from Philadelphia, we would still love to receive your application! However, we do not have many Home Visit Volunteers outside the Philadelphia area, so we will need to follow a different Home Check Process:

Fill out the Foster Family Application (below) *Note: You must be at least 18 years old to apply.

PLEASE NOTE: The form must be completed on a desktop or laptop.  The form is not mobile compatible.  We apologize for this inconvenience.
