Foster a Pet

Fostering is a rewarding and enriching experience that provides pets with a loving, temporary home while they’re waiting to be adopted or while their owners are experiencing housing insecurity, hospitalization or other personal crisis.

Schedule and time commitments range from a couple of days to several months depending on the pet. Pet foster parents will receive more information about available fosters and can commit to taking pets home based on their schedule and comfort level. To learn more about our current foster parents, check out our Foster Spotlight.

Applications for new foster parents are temporarily closed while we make some updates to our program, but we’d love to stay in touch! If you’d like to foster with Seattle Humane, please fill out the interest form below and we’ll send you an email as soon as applications are open again. The exact timeline is unconfirmed, but we hope to welcome new foster parents again in Fall 2023.
