About Our Foster Care Program:

Foster care is a temporary arrangement in which a shelter animal is cared for in a volunteer’s home prior to adoption.

Our foster program allows dogs and cats to receive specialized care beyond what we can provide in the shelter.

A variety of animals require foster care, including animals that are newborn, orphaned, pregnant or nursing, under-socialized or untrained, special needs, and more.

We require a home visit prior to any foster stay and annually thereafter.

Foster volunteers must provide proof of current vaccinations for all pets in the household at the time of fostering.

All foster volunteers must abide by the volunteer code of conduct, comply with the foster care agreement and contract, adhere to zoning and animal control ordinances, and be 18 years or older.
