PACT receives hundreds of applications each year to foster great dogs, cats, and small companion animals for citizens across the US.  Unfortunately, we’re not able to help every single family that applies to our programs.  At this time we are unable to accept situations that include: temporary homelessness, eviction, natural disaster, addiction or substance abuse issues, mental illness, or incarceration.

This resources center was created with these special cases in mind.  If PACT is unable to help care for your pet, please find your state below and review the resources available to you.

PACT Reference Resources

When finding the best foster home for your pet outside of our program, please feel free to use these template documents to help guide you and your pet’s temporary caregiver.  It’s ALWAYS best to have a written contract in place to outline the length of your pet’s stay, your responsibilities, and the responsibilities of the foster home to avoid any confusion.
