One Step Closer Animal Rescue (O.S.C.A.R.)

'Helping you find your new best friend'

Sparta, NJ

Interested in Fostering?

You can take a dog or cat into your home for a period of time (1 week to a few months). You take care of them and give them the extra time they need until they find a home of their own. Many animals are very adoptable but are in high-kill shelters where they only have 3 days to find a home. Most just need more time to find their new family.

Fostering is a very rewarding experience to know YOU were the reason they are alive, you were part of their journey to find their forever home.

We provide our foster homes with dog food, toys and treats (crate if needed). On average our foster families have the pups for about 2 weeks before they are placed. The longest was 2 months and that was an adult extra-large dog and not the norm. The shortest was a couple days, but on average it is 2 weeks.


Once you fill out the Online Foster Application Form, we will be able to match you with a foster dog/puppy that is a good fit for your home and lifestyle. We provide everything for our foster homes, food, toys, and a crate (if needed); you provide the LOVE. Thank you for helping us with the greatest of rescue needs.

Also, we will need a Volunteer Waiver for each family member that resides in your household prior to fostering.

The Volunteer Waiver can be emailed directly to OSCARRescue@yahoo.com.
