About Fostering


All of our rescue pets live in foster homes. Foster parents find out what the animals like or dislike, what type of family structure would serve them best, and which home environment would allow them to flourish.


Because we have this information, Long Way Home Adoptables does not employ a “first come, first served” adoption approach. We evaluate all approved adoption applications based on what would be the perfect home for each particular animal based on their own unique personalities and needs. Fosters are crucial in helping us match pets with families!


We are pleased you have chosen to foster a companion animal and honored that you have selected a Long Way Home Adoptables rescue to become part of your family.


Our organization runs entirely on dedicated volunteer fosters who often have families and pets and work full time jobs, so your patience during this process is appreciated!



While fosters are not REQUIRED to be local to College Station, Texas, it is highly recommended. In the event that emergency care is required, fosters must be within a reasonable distance from pre-approved veterinary services.

Additionally, we prefer fosters attend local events when possible, and fosters must be willing to bring their fosters to our clinics or transport pick ups in College Station, Hearne, Tomball, Waco, Leander, Spring or La Grange.
