Foster volunteers provide temporary loving homes for pets that are not yet ready for adoption. There are many situations in which pets may need foster care, such as:

  • Adult cats and dogs with litters
  • Young kittens and puppies
  • Cats and dogs recovering from surgery
  • Pets with special health needs
  • Pets that need extra socialization

Foster homes are an invaluable way to provide care and socialization away from the hectic atmosphere of the shelter. Volunteers can specialize, choosing, for example, to focus on underage pets or nursing moms. The length of time greatly depends on the needs of the pets but can range from 1 week to 3 months.
