Can I crash at your place for a little while?

Love dogs? Have a little extra space and time? Foster with PBSF!

Our foster program is open to anyone who is interested in providing a loving home to our furkids while they wait to find their "furever homes". We are based out of Louisville, KY. In order for us to provide for our foster families, we require volunteers to be in the geographic area of Louisville Metro, Kentucky.

Fostering a shelter dog is the hardest job you'll ever love, as you are pouring love into a dog that has often been abused and neglected in order to transition them to a permanent home! Sometimes, these dogs are high need medical cases that require time, energy, and lots of vet appointments. Or a puppy that needs some basic obedience training and a lot of attention. It's hard to say good-bye, but we adopt locally and a lot of our fosters keep in contact with their adopters.

Sarah is constantly asked to accept dogs into Pit Bulls of St. Francis, however she can only say YES when she has a foster home for them to live in as part of a family. Won't you please open your heart and home to them? Pit Bulls of St. Francis provides everything you need; crates, food, toys, bowls, collars, leashes, and ALL medical expenses are covered. You provide the space and love.


As a Foster Parent: we pay the expenses of our furkids while they are in your care.  All you need to provide is a safe environment, structure, stability and love while they transition from a shelter to a home. Often our shelter dogs need guidance, a refresher course in "house-training" and some basic obedience training.

If you are interested in participating in our Foster Program please fill out our foster application and hit submit.  It will automatically email to us. We will get back with you as quickly as our board members' time allows. We all have jobs, and volunteer our extra time. We appreciate your patience!
