Foster Program Overview
Our Foster Program helps us save the lives of hundreds of additional animals every year by allowing us to increase our capacity, and treat medical or behavioral conditions that are not manageable in a shelter setting. Fostering can also be an extremely rewarding experience for your family, knowing that you have helped save a pet's life. Shelter animals may need temporary foster homes for a variety of reasons including:
- Juvenile animals that are too young to be spayed or neutered
- Animals that have a medical or behavioral condition that may be difficult to manage in a shelter setting
- Animals that need a break from the shelter
