Foster a Pet

Effective Sunday, March 22, 2020

To minimize the traffic inside the shelter and maintaining social-distance, while still giving our pets a chance at going into foster care, we have instituted “foster care by appointment”, effective March 22, 2020.

If you are interested in fostering with us, we will now be scheduling appointments to pick up fosters. To sign up to be a foster, please fill out our Foster Sign Up Sheet to reserve your time slot. We are trying to minimize the traffic inside the shelter and maintain social-distancing, while still giving our pets a chance to go to a loving home.

Our foster care team is vital to our mission; that is to save more lives! We look for responsible, animal loving people who are willing to open up their hearts and homes for our animals.

To be a foster provider means to have a shelter pet in your home temporarily. You are increasing our capacity to care for more animals. For every one animal in foster care, two lives are saved: the animal going into your home and the other animal entering the empty cage. We provide all medical care for foster animals; the foster parent provides, food, water, cat litter, and lots of love!

Animals that are in need of a foster home may have special-needs, are extremely sick and need extra medical attention, or are recovering from a special surgery. During the kitten season, we need foster homes to care for moms with litters as well as orphan kittens that need to be bottle-fed.
