Foster

Fosters help to care for shelter pets that need it the most! Fosters are needed for pets that are not doing well in the shelter environment, are recovering from surgery, or need additional care.

We do require foster parents to commit to at least one foster pet (or litter) per year. All of your time spent caring for foster pets helps save lives! Help make a difference in the life of a shelter pet today.

If you are interested in becoming a foster, please complete and submit a foster inquiry form. Once your form has been received, shelter staff will email you to move forward as a new foster parent with the shelter!

FAQs

What kind of pets need a foster home?

Dogs, cats, and critters of all ages need a foster home!

The majority of animals fostered are litters of kittens. Litters of kittens and puppies come to the shelter as strays or were abandoned and are too fragile to be placed in permanent homes. They need the security of their littermates, special care, and to learn important lessons from each other before being adopted.

What supplies does the shelter provide?

Fosters provide the love and we provide everything else including food, toys, blankets, and medical care.

How long would a foster pet be in my care?

The length of time an animal requires in a foster home is entirely based on the individual animal. Animals can be fostered anywhere from a few days, to a few weeks, to a few months, and rarely, a year or more. It is all based on the pet and your desired level of commitment.
