Foster homes are in a unique position to expand BHS assets to rehabilitate animals in need. Often times BHS receives animals that are not deemed "adoptable" for numerous reasons; including pregnant mothers, nursing babies, sick, injured, or animals with training needs. These animals require extra time and care to become "adoptable", which is why foster homes are needed.
Not only does foster care allow these animals to get the care they need, but it also provides additional space in the shelter to house other homeless animals.
Fostering is very beneficial to the caregiver. Every animal fostered is equal to animal lives saved. Knowing that you are saving lives is one of the most rewarding feelings possible.
With additional foster parents, many more shelter animals can be adopted and ultimately find their forever homes. We sincerely appreciate your interest in caring for our homeless animals and hope you join our efforts!
If you can not foster an animal, you can still help! We are seeking volunteers with special talents such as marketing/graphic design/advertising to help design flyers and brochures to promote this life-saving program.
Community outreach volunteers are also needed to help raise awareness of the foster care program and help recruit more foster homes.
