Like most animal shelters, the Hinsdale Humane Society is overrun with homeless animals each year, especially during the summer months. Among these animals are pregnant cats and dogs, orphaned kittens and puppies, and nursing cats and dogs with un-weaned litters. Foster care provides these special-needs animals with an atmosphere where they can thrive away from the stress of the shelter environment. Because of this invaluable program and it's dedicated, caring volunteers, these animals who otherwise might not be adopted, are able to find loving, lifelong homes.

How to Become a Foster Volunteer:

All volunteers are required to fill out a Volunteer application. Once we have your contact information, you will be sent our online Volunteer Orientation with a link to a survey. Upon completion of the survey, our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you with the Foster Family orientation information.

Upon completion of the orientations and your approval as a Foster Home Parent, you will be required to pay an annual $25 Illinois Department of Agriculture licensing fee (this is done through Hinsdale Humane Society). You will receive a Foster Care Folder and be asked to sign a Foster Care Agreement.

Hinsdale Humane Society will provide you with all the necessary food, equipment, and medication (if required) you will need while the foster animal(s) is in your care. All you will need to provide is the TLC.

You may be asked to return the animal(s) to the shelter periodically for routine vaccinations, weight checks, and de-wormings, as needed.
