Foster A Pet
If you are interested in providing short-term support to a pet in need, please consider joining our network of foster homes. We need foster homes for cats and dogs of all ages and, occasionally, small animals, such as rabbits and guinea pigs. Foster families provide in-home care for a pet until the pet can be adopted. Foster homes are an incredibly important part of the adoption process for many of our animals that are too young or sick for their spay or neuter surgery. Fostering allows the animal to develop its unique, adorable personality in a comfortable, loving environment until it is ready to be spayed or neutered and then placed on the adoption floor. It is a fun and rewarding way to help the animals in the shelter. Care responsibilities include providing food, water, shelter, socialization, and affection.
If a foster pet needs medical attention, the foster family may have to transport the pet for veterinary care. During peak kitten times, we may also need fosters who are willing to bottle feed motherless kittens. This is a responsibility that requires extra care and attention. If you are willing to provide this level of care, please indicate your interest in your foster application.
