What is the usual time commitment for foster care?

The time varies, but usually is between 2 weeks to 4 weeks. When there is an animal in need of foster we will share all of the pertinent information and you choose if that is appropriate for you and your household.

What types of animals are placed in foster care?

Animals are placed in foster care for a variety of reasons but the goal is to meet their behavioral, social, and physical needs. Some may be too young to be adopted, have an illness or injury and need to recover before they can be adopted, or they may need to be socialized and learn to live in a family environment.

Who can become a foster care volunteer?

  • You must be allowed to have animals in your home
  • Be able to transport the foster animal(s) to and from the shelter for periodic health exams including vaccinations and spaying or neutering.
  • Children can also help provide the love and care for the foster animal, but adults are responsible for all aspects of the foster care.

If you are physically able to regularly care and monitor the needs and health of an animal you can be a foster care volunteer. You will also need to keep the foster animal’s environment clean and disinfected.

You will need to frequently monitor the animals in your care and the commitment depends on the needs of the unique animal.

About Homeward Pet Adoption Center

Mission Statement

Homeward Pet is a nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter serving the Seattle area. Our mission is to give homeless animals a second chance through our rescue, shelter, and adoption programs.


Founded in 1990 under the name "Hooterville Pet Safehaus". We started with simple goals: save and re-home cats and dogs and educate the public about spaying and neutering their pets.

In 2002 Hooterville became Homeward Pet Adoption Center. We are one of the largest no-kill shelters in the state of Washington! Each year Homeward helps over 1,300 cats and dogs find their forever home. Where do these animals come from? 50% are owner surrenders and the other 50% are animals we rescue from shelters who euthanize.

We remain small with a staff of 19 (half are part-time). And our 450+ volunteers are our backbone (thank you volunteers and donors!). Many of the rescued animals who come to Homeward get more love and attention in our shelter than they have ever known.
