Foster Care

Foster care families provide temporary, in-home care to needy animals for a variety of reasons, including puppies needing extra socialization, bottle-feeding kittens, a dog recovering from surgery or a cat recovering from an illness.  Fostering is a great way for families to become involved, especially those with children too young to become volunteers at the shelter. We try to make the best match between the foster family and the animal needing in-home care, and every placement is subject to the foster family’s approval and availability.

Groups:  Occasionally, we have projects that we could use help on from a volunteer group doing a one-time project.  If you are a member of a group, company or service organization that would like to participate in a one day volunteer project with us, let us know!
