Are you interested in making a difference in a dog or cat’s life, but you’re unsure or unable to commit long-term? Why not consider our short-term foster program, Remmi’s List?

Studies show that giving a dog or cat a break from the shelter environment for even a short time significantly reduces stress which helps to make them more adoptable in the long run. Remmi’s list is made up of our dogs and cats here at the Angels of Assisi shelter who most need some time out of the kennels. These animals are either senior, long term residents, in need of medical care, in dire need of a mental health break from the shelter, or all of the above. Our staff will even provide training on medication administration for our special needs animals. While the time in our shelter is temporary for all of its residents, Remmi’s list aims to highlight those who could use a vacation the most. If you’re interested in becoming a short-term foster parent to an animal on Remmi’s List, pleas fill out our online foster application. If you have any additional questions, please contact foster@angelsofassisi.org. 

Please note: Because it takes cats a bit longer to decompress after relocating, the minimum duration for a Remmi’s List cat is 1 month. Remmi’s List dogs can be fostered for as little as 1 night.
