Foster a Animal - Save a Life!

By opening your heart and home to an animal from the shelter, you are saving at least two lives - the animal you foster, and the one that now has 'breathing room’ in a shelter that unfortunately, often gets filled to capacity.

As a foster, you set the parameters for the animals you care for - size, gender, age. All our foster animals are temperament tested before being accepted into the program, and the cost of their medical care is covered by the SPCA/HS. We ask fosters to supply food and basic training if needed, and to bring the dog or cat to at least two of our weekend adoption events. You can "try it out" as a temporary or weekend foster, if one of our regular foster parents has to be away.
