Foster Program

If you have space in your heart and home, please fill out the form below to join us as a foster family!

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 pets that are orphaned, pregnant or nursing, under-socialized, require medical care, or would simply hang out at your house than in one of our kennels while waiting to be adopted!

Foster care not only provides a much more comfortable environment for the pet you take home; it also opens a kennel for another pet in need in our community.

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.

After submitting a foster application, our Foster Coordinator will review your application and send you a welcome email with the next steps. In the meantime, please watch our Foster Orientation and read through the Foster Manual to learn how our foster program works. Questions? Contact our Foster Coordinator at foster@rhhumanesociety.org.
