Foster Care Program:

Is being cooped up starting to feel a bit lonely? Have you made it all the way through Netflix and are bored and looking for a new entertainment source? Do you need someone to force you outside to get some exercise in between taking virtual tours of zoos and museums?
FOSTER A PET TODAY!
They are experts on caring for humans during times of self-isolation and social distancing.

In anticipation of an increase in animals coming into local shelters in coming weeks, and to get ahead of more restrictive orders on movement out in public, we are looking for foster homes for our current shelter pets to free up space and resources to meet the coming demands of our community.

If you have space in your home, please fill out the foster form below and we will get you set up with your Covid Companion right away!

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.

A home visit has been waived at this time due to the current crisis, however that is subject to change. So please be flexible.

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.
