Fostering takes time and effort but the rewards are tremendous. Fostering can be an ideal way to enjoy the companionship of a dog while waiting for" the right one" to come along! We pay the food, veterinary and other expenses; you provide the TLC.

The Alternative Humane Society will do everything possible to make the right match for both the foster home and the animal that we have rescued. Agreeing to foster an animal means taking on a big responsibility. We try to ensure that everyone in your household realizes this. We interview prospective foster families to ensure they can provide both the required daily care and also give lots of love! Before placing an animal into your care, we also conduct a house visit and discuss any special needs that the animal may have.

We pay for medical care, and any other special costs, that an animal may require while in a foster home.

If you’re interested in fostering for the Alternative Humane Society, please fill in our on-line application form found on our website at or contact us at
