Foster for CARE

Open your home up to socializing kittens, being a puppy parent or helping out our senior superstars — fostering is for all kinds of people. Adult dogs also need a little extra TLC and training to make them adoption-ready. Fostering gives you the perfect opportunity to share your heart and home with a fuzzy critter in need — then once you have helped them be ready for a forever home, you can send them back to CARE and take another fuzzy friend for awhile.

Sometimes, animals aren’t yet ready for our adoption program — like puppies or kittens under 8 weeks old. Sometimes, animals get sick or injured and need special care. And other times, our shelter is simply filled to capacity. That’s when our Foster Care program volunteers swoop in to save the day. This program is no cost to you, we will send you home with all the supplies that you will need to care for he animal.
