Fosters Needed for Homeless Pets

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Mary S Roberts Pet Adoption Center

  • 2 people are interested

The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center has an urgent need for volunteers to rise to a specific challenge.

Foster parents are priceless resources that enable us to offer a second chance to not only underage kittens, but also to puppies, injured pets needing special care, and adult animals needing more socialization and time away from the Center. Foster parents, like you, are the reason we are able to offer these pets needing specialized care the opportunity to live a long, healthy, and happy life.

Any volunteers that are under 18, please ask your parents to contact us if they are able and willing to provide a foster home to these sweet babies. All supplies and education necessary for their care would be provided by the Adoption Center. Please email us as soon as you can if you would like to foster these loving pets in transition.

To get started immediately please fill out a foster application using this link:

We welcome you to browse pets available for foster here:

About Mary S Roberts Pet Adoption Center



Mission Statement

The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center strives to eliminate the suffering of homeless dogs and cats by providing humane care for pets in transition, facilitating adoptions to good homes, supporting pet overpopulation education and supporting sterilization of companion animals.


As a limited-entry companion adoption center, the Pet Adoption Center takes in healthy, adoptable cats and dogs from owners who can no longer care for them. As space allows, we also select healthy, adoptable cats and dogs from other local animal welfare agencies. Pets that are accepted into our center must pass health and behavior evaluations. All animals stay in our care until a good, loving home is found. No healthy, adoptable animal is ever destroyed. If space is not available to admit a pet, or if the pet cannot be accepted due to any other reason, owners are referred to other facilities and organizations.

All pets while in our care receive food, a comfortable environment, medical attention and loving socialization from both staff and volunteers. Our staff and volunteers monitor the physical, emotional and mental health of the animals daily. A progressive "stress reduction" program helps keep our residents healthy, happy and adoptable. All animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed or neutered. For animals that are too young to be adopted, volunteers offer temporary homes through our pet foster care program.
