Can't Adopt? Foster!
Aren’t ready for a lifetime commitment? You can still help! Small kittens and sometimes puppies without mothers often come in and require 24-hour care, which we cannot provide for them at the shelter. Foster homes are needed until they are old enough to eat on their own and be spayed or neutered (minimum 8 weeks of age) at which time are returned to the shelter to be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and made available for adoption.
We also have “special needs” pets that need a quiet place to recover after surgery, heartworm treatment, or they are just having a hard time adjusting to life at the shelter. We ask that fosters of our “special needs” pets to attend adoption events when possible, and network on their own to place their foster pet (all potential adopters must follow current adoption process). We provide the training on how to care for the pet(s), food, and medical care. Foster homes provide a safe environment and TLC while the pets(s) grow and/or recover, food/water, and transportation to and from appointments that are scheduled.
Foster parents have the first option of adopting the foster pet(s) when they are ready.
Please contact the shelter and see if we have any pets that are currently looking for a foster home. All fosters must fill out a foster application and be approved prior to taking pet(s) home. Please fill out an application to be considered for this program. Applications can be e-mailed to our Foster Coordinator, faxed, mailed, or dropped off at the shelter in person during our adoption hours. Lots of new friends are waiting to meet you!
