How do I become a Foster?

  • Watch Information Session online (video below).
  • Submit completed foster care application to the Foster Coordinator.
  • Provide proof of rabies and alteration for all owned animals in the home.
  • Pick up the animal and necessary supplies at the shelter.
  • Come to the Shelter every two weeks with foster animals for a recheck exam.

What to expect while fostering

Puppy kisses and kitten purrs! Give the same love and care to these animals as you would your own.

They need attention, love, grooming, medicine, a safe and clean living space, basic training, food, water and sometimes a special diet.  You will be the first in line to adopt the foster animal just in case “you fall in love with your foster pet!” Create a positive family experience and help kids develop a sense of caring, responsibility and nurturing of another living creature. All fosters receive five volunteer hours each day they care for a shelter animal in their home. Getting animals out of the shelter helps foster animals thrive in a home setting. It also allows a kennel to open up for another animal in need. Every animal fostered is a life saved!

Animals that are chosen for foster could be underage (under eight weeks), underweight, under socialized, sick or injured, pregnant, not adjusting to shelter life, stray holds, or in need of basic obedience. Kittens or puppies under four weeks of age need to be bottle fed every three hours to stay happy and healthy. They take a lot of hard work and dedication. The reward of watching these little lives grow and develop personalities is an amazing experience for the whole family.

 The shelter provides all material needed for the foster animals including medical needs.
