Foster Care for Shelter Animals (Dogs, Cats) in Need

Save to Favorites

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona

  • 133 people are interested

The Foster Care Volunteer provides care for animals that are not yet ready for adoption: very young, sick or under-socialized. Placing animals into qualified foster homes on a temporary basis enables the HSSA to save the lives of animals that might not otherwise be saved. While the typical foster cases are infant dogs and cats, foster care is sometimes needed for adult animals recovering from illness or surgery, or animals that need socialization, a time away from the shelter and/or training.

Fostering is hard work--but it's also really fun! It's the ideal volunteer activity for someone who is unable to make a lifetime commitment with an animal companion (due to work or travel or other restrictions), but who thrives on interactions with animals.
