Fostering is an integral part of our organization. By utilizing a dedicated volunteer network and a home setting to get animals rehabilitated and ready to be adopted, we can help animals that we would otherwise not be able to support. It is through foster homes that more animals are given the chance at life they deserve.
Our biggest need is for foster homes to care for kittens and sometimes puppies because they have depressed immunities at young ages, and until they’re fully vaccinated, they’re more susceptible to getting sick. We also need foster homes for animals that are recovering from surgery or ones that need a break from the shelter environment. Foster stays range from a few days to several months.
As a foster parent, you would be responsible for taking a homeless animal into your home and providing him/her with food, water, toys and lots of love. We provide all medical care, and a support team to help you with any questions you may have during the foster period. Foster parents are required to transport their foster animals to scheduled medical appointments or adoption events. In some instances the foster parent may be asked to administer medications or special diets. Foster parents should be committed to the animal/s that they are fostering for the agreed foster period.
If you are interested in only fostering please fill out a foster application below and schedule your Foster Orientation. Fosters must be at least 21 years old. Please contact the foster coordinator so we can notify you when there are openings or call (734) 661-3520.
