Have you ever wanted puppies, but don't want them long-term? Consider fostering! Foster volunteers work closely with our Foster Care Specialist and clinic team to help raise puppies in our community. You not only get to play with puppies in your home, you also help keep these puppies and their moms safe and healthy while they grow up. It's also a good way for your family to learn responsibilities of pet ownership--without all of the costs of puppy ownership.
Fostering Humane Society puppies, you open up kennels for other dogs in our community and in communities around the country. Every time you take a litter of puppies home, you help ensure that these puppies grow up big and strong, and with a loving family.
Anyone considering fostering puppies should understand that it isn't all just fun and play. It's easy to become emotionally attached, making it difficult to let puppies go. Puppies can get sick; newborns can even die of congenital defects. We provide essential training and support to help you with this and with the logistics of fostering.
Foster families must meet certain criteria to participate. You can already have pets in the home, but caring for puppies may require certain conditions to keep them safe and healthy.
