Foster a Shelter Animal in your Home

Help us save more animals by providing a temporary home for an animal to get it ready for adoption. There are several reasons fostering is needed:

  • Foster care can save an animal’s life when the shelter is full, allowing us to intake an animal we might not otherwise be able to.
  • Some animals just need a quiet, loving place to recover for a few days or weeks from surgery, illness or injury before they are ready for adoption.
  • Some animals don’t do well in a shelter environment because they are frightened or need a little extra attention or care.
  • Nursing moms with litters, and kittens or puppies under 8 weeks of age with fragile immune systems need time to grow and become strong before they can be sterilized, vaccinated and made available for adoption.
  • Some animals that have been in the shelter for a long period could use a vacation and some special play time and love to give them a break from shelter life.  

Giving love to an animal for a short period on its journey to finding a forever home is fun and rewarding, and a great way for families to give back. Fostering can be for a few days, a few weeks or a few months, depending upon the circumstances.  It is also a great way to experience the joy of having a pet for a short period if you're not in a position to make a lifetime commitment. If you're interested in fostering, please complete and submit the application below and a shelter representative will contact you shortly.
