Fostering is the life-blood of our rescue organization. In order to save animals from county shelters, we have to have a foster home to keep them until they are adopted. IRHS provides medical requirements and support. The Foster provides a safe place, basic needs, and love. Adoptable animals are featured on petfinder.com, social media, events and adoption stands. Fosters are expected to take an active role in helping to place the animals whenever possible.
