Foster a dog!

We are in need of adult dog foster parents and families at Osceola County Animal Services!

Adult, large breed dogs are our most common dog foster need. Consistent and patient training and care is necessary. We also need dog fosters that are willing to promote their furry foster and help us find an adopter and fur-ever home for them!

Foster applications are available online at www.osceolacountypets.com where you click on the Volunteer tab at the top and then "Foster an Animal". You will also take a brief training module online in order to get started.

If you believe you have the time and dedication to care for a dog in need, please apply to be a foster home! You must be 18 years of age and live in Osceola County, FL. You supply the love and home, we will supply all the supplies, food, and medical care for your foster pet.

Adult dogs are also in need of positive training and consistent care. We will work with you to develop a behavioral training plan for your foster pet. You must be willing to follow through on the training plan and open to learning how to provide the best possible environment and care for your foster.

Our adult dogs need you! Are you able to help?

Mission Statement

Osceola County Animal Services is a government operated animal shelter and field services program. Our focus is on education and working with our community to provide life saving programs and services.


Giving hands on care to animals, educating our community, providing administrative support, and more, volunteers improve the lives of the animals in our care every day. We understand that life is busy and by you taking the time to help animals at this shelter, we will be able to save more lives and reach more people. Our gratitude is only surpassed by our enthusiasm to build a successful and comprehensive volunteer program.

We want your experience to be both rewarding and challenging. We provide the training for all volunteer and foster care positions; therefore, no prior experience is required. Due to the amount of training we require for most of our volunteer positions, we ask for a 6 month commitment working 8 hours per month. Volunteers can either come in for a regularly scheduled reoccurring shift on the same day and time each week or schedule their shifts through our online volunteer scheduling system each month. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Pet foster parents must be 18 years of age.



We'll work with your schedule.
