Foster families are a critical part of saving lives.
Kittens: Kitten season now lasts all year and newborns arrive at the shelter regularly. Many of them have lost their mom and are so young they need to be bottle-fed or they will not survive. If you can help, even for a few days, you can literally be a lifesaver.
Large Dogs: The shelter is filled with medium and large-sized dogs right now. You can help make space for new dogs that arrive almost daily by being a foster for our adult dogs. A few days to a few weeks in a foster home can really help.
Medical Foster/Special Needs: At times, we have injured or special-needs animals who need a quiet place to heal. You can help speed their recovery.
Please consider joining our family of foster families and help save lives.
How to Become a Foster
What kind of animals need foster care?
How long do animals stay in foster care?
The typical foster stay is two weeks to two months, depending on the needs of the individual animals in your care. The time frame of each foster situation will be discussed with you ahead of time.
Can I foster if I have pets of my own?
Yes, we welcome pet owners as fosters. Please keep in mind that there is always a health risk when exposing your pets to other animals, in any setting. However, the risk is minimal if your pets are vaccinated and in good health. We also recommend keeping fosters in a quiet, separate room of the house.
What expenses are involved with foster care?
Foster families provide care, exercise, socialization, and lots of love! We provide all food and any necessary medical care for animals in foster homes, including vaccinations and medications.
