Foster care volunteers provide much needed care for animals who are not yet ready for adoption. As a foster parent, you’ll provide basic care for the animal as well as loving attention.
Our foster program allows us to save animals who are difficult to care for in a shelter – orphaned or feral kittens, animals recovering from major surgery, or dogs needing one-on-one behavior rehabilitation – giving them a comfortable home setting until they are ready for adoption.

This program is especially critical during kitten season – from early spring and through late fall. Hundreds of kitties need temporary homes until they are ready to be adopted. These kittens might be with a homeless mom who is still nursing them or orphaned and either weaned or unweaned. Ideally, kittens stay in a foster home until they weigh two pounds (usually by nine weeks old) and are then neutered before becoming available for adoption.
To make your foster experience as easy as possible, we will provide you a starter kit of supplies, all required medications, relevant training, and on-call assistance.
