Become a Foster

LEAPS does not have a shelter or kennel facilities. We rely solely on the kindness and generosity of fosters who open their homes and hearts to animals needing a place to stay while we find them their forever homes. Want to make the world a better place in one easy step? Foster a LEAPS dog, puppy, cat or kitten. We are always looking for foster homes for our dogs, puppies, cats and kittens to make sure we can remove them from unwanted situations as quickly as possible.


We will do our best to prepare you for your fostering journey. We are always available to answer your questions and to provide guidance and assistance.

3. Open your home to us for a home check,

4. Wait for your foster to arrive.


LEAPS will cover all medical expenses for the animal you are fostering.


Fostering is a challenging and rewarding experience. You are a temporary guardian, an angel, for a dog, puppy, cat or kitten in need of a safe, reliable, loving home who is waiting for a permanent home. You are also an important part of the adoption process. After all, who knows the animal better than his/her foster? Fostering empowers you to tell us about the animal’s personality, preferences and requirements. It helps us increase our chances of finding the right home for the animal.


16 Reasons why fostering is basically the best thing in the world


Mother Teresa said ‘Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love’. Fostering is such an opportunity. When you foster, you provide a warm, loving temporary home (safe haven) for an animal in need. The animals are driven up to 288 km from the West Coast to Cape Town, to start their new journey. It is a drive of hope, a promise of a new life. Let us drive them to you, apply to foster.
