Volunteer With Us : Foster At Home

Help Save Lives From Home

Foster Care Program

Last year, 5,483 shelter animals benefited from foster care. The care these dedicated volunteers provide is invaluable, both to the animals and to the people who adopt them. You can foster as much or as little as you like for a wide variety of animals inlcuding kittens, puppies, cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small critters. Fostering is a rewarding and enriching experience, and a great volunteer project for families or individuals who love animals but cannot commit to having a full-time pet.

Pinky the kittenTime commitments can range from one to eight weeks. All you need is a room (even a bathroom) and some spare time. We provide all supplies and any necessary medications. To join the foster program, you must first attend an HS101 volunteer orientation.
