Foster An Animal

Be a lifesaver! Over 1,000 pets a year are cared for by our foster families.

Call or fill out the Foster Application below

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.

If you’re interested in becoming a foster volunteer, please fill out the application below.

  • The purpose of this questionnaire is NOT to quiz you on your capabilities as a dog owner, but to find out what kind of animals you are willing to foster, how often you are willing to foster, etc., so that we can find the best possible matches between dogs and their foster parents. Answering "no" to a question does not necessarily preclude you as a foster parent; it just influences your pairing.
