Pack West is in constant need of volunteers and foster homes. Foster families, in particular, are the lifeblood of our organization, and we’re currently seeking experienced, responsible individuals who are willing and able to open their homes and hearts to animals in need.
Caring for a wolfdog (especially a higher-content one) is no easy task, and in fact, it takes a very special lifestyle to be able to accommodate one. Pack West offers monthly incentives to long-term wolfdog fosters to help cover costs of food, medical care, and containment. To be a wolfdog-specific foster, please fill out our foster application below, and include proof of prior experience when you submit the completed form.
Not all of the canines we rescue have wolf content – in fact, many are domestic-breed look-a-likes such as huskies, malamutes, German shepherds, or mixes thereof. We’re seeking people in Washington and Oregon who can provide temporary and long-term homes for these misplaced and abused canines, as well. Caring for them is usually much easier than caring for wolf-content canines, but incentives are still available for those capable of providing exceptional long-term foster homes.
Fostering animals isn’t easy, especially when it’s time to give them up to their new families. But without fosters, Pack West would not exist. We’re constantly hard-pressed for room in rescue, and there are more animals in need than we have kennels to provide. Opening your home to a pup in need is perhaps the most direct and rewarding way to save animals from lives of abandonment, abuse, and neglect.
Other Ways to Help Pack West
Another way to help us in a more direct manner is to support us with Amazon Smile, or purchase items for us from our Amazon Wish List. These items are important to Pack West’s ability to operate, and include materials such as leashes, collars, food, kennels, and building supplies for our containment.
