Unicorn Foster Program

Helping Dogs Find Future Homes

Fostering makes a huge difference in the lives of our animals, especially those who have spent a long time at the shelter. To give some of our dogs an extra boost, we've started the Unicorn Foster Program, finding our unique pups the perfect place to learn more skills and prepare for an adoptive home.

What is the Unicorn Foster Program?

The Unicorn Foster Program aims to find foster placements for our long-term dogs, dogs who are currently in our Shelter Success Program, and dogs who have specific needs in a future home. 

How does it work?

Fosters in this program must be able to commit to at least six months of fostering. This helps with stability and consistency in training. All fosters in the program will work directly with our Trainer & Behavior Consultant, MarLee Thompson, and will have private lessons with her every two weeks. Once you apply, you'll meet with both MarLee and our Foster Coordinator, Christa, at PAWS Atlanta, and they will match you with the dog that best fits your home and family.

How do I get involved?

Fill out our foster application. There will be a spot in the application to indicate that you're interested in the Unicorn Foster Program. Check that box, and when our Foster Coordinator reaches out to schedule your home inspection, she will discuss the program in more detail with you.
