Become a Foster Parent



We provide the pet and you provide the love, space and attention!


Foster parents are an important part of our mission and ultimate goal to reach a place where all saveable pets are given the medical and behavior care they need to be placed in loving homes.

We foster out the following types of pets: kittens that are too young, puppies that are too young, cats and dogs who need special attention or just need a break from the shelter.

During busy months we are inundated with kittens and mothers with litters.  We need help relieving us so we don not become over crowded.  They just need a quiet place for them to go until they are old enough to come back, get spay/neutered and then placed up for adoption.  Our foster parents get very involved in the care and placement of their fosters.  If you want, you can even help us by screening the new potential adopters.

To get started all you have to do is fill out this Foster Profile and email or bring it into the humane society. Then we can pick out a new foster pet that will suit your lifestyle, you will sign our foster contract, we will provide you with the supplies you need and you can then enjoy the love of a foster pet.
