Organization Policies

Thank you for your interest in becoming part of our
Grand Prairie Animal Services Foster Family!

With the help of an amazing group of foster caregivers, the GPAS Foster Program gives animals that are not yet ready for adoption a chance to live and be loved in foster homes. Whether you’re helping a dog, or watching an injured kitten recover from illness or injury, fostering gives you the opportunity to single-handedly change an animal’s life for the better and create space in the shelter to accommodate other animals. Your act of kindness is rewarded beyond words - you have helped change an animal’s life.

  • Each animal fostered out to a home opens up a kennel for us to save another animal.
  • Fostering can provide the unique, individualized attention that some special-needs animals require before they’re ready for adoption.
  • Fostering has a direct, positive impact on the animal and is a hugely rewarding experience for those who choose to become caregivers.

The GPAS Foster Program is always in need of temporary housing for our shelter animals.

 Please note:

  • We require foster parents to be at least 18 years old and consent to a background check.
  • We require foster parents to sign a foster contract to ensure understanding of GPAS processes and procedures.
  • The GPAS Foster Program is based in the City of Grand Prairie. We ask that our foster caregivers reside in the DFW area in order to easily get to and from our Adoption Center and to events in the DFW area with their foster animal(s).
  • Our goal is to match potential foster caregivers to the needs of the GPAS Foster.  Some animals will not be eligible for the foster program.
