Become A Foster Parent

Save a LIFE
Foster Today: You can make a difference and save an animal’s life by temporarily opening your home to dog or cat in need.

Our wonderful foster parents are true heroes, making a life-changing difference for animals in need. Sometimes, we encounter situations where we don’t have enough space in our facility, or we have animals who are too young or unwell to thrive in a shelter setting. However, when we find loving foster homes for these animals, we can welcome them into our care. This allows us to provide essential veterinary care, transforming their lives and sparing them from being abandoned on the streets.

INTRODUCING FOSTER FIELD TRIPS! Be a dog’s hero for a day! We are scheduling foster field trip days when you can sign up in advance, come in, and take a dog out to Shelby Farms, a coffee shop, a dog-friendly restaurant, and other pet-friendly places! Send an email to to learn more!



Helping You Helping Us

We’ve Got Your Back

The Humane Society provides all supplies (food, dishes, pee pads, litter box, litter, scoop, toys, beds, carrier and/or kennel, collar/harness/leash, medications if necessary) for foster pets, and provides all veterinary care, including routine preventative care, for our foster pets.


Become a Foster

Here are the steps to take to become a Foster Pet Parent!

  • First, fill out our friendly foster application, and our Foster Coordinator will be there to guide you through the process.
  • Make sure your beloved animals have up-to-date vaccination records. We want to ensure everyone stays healthy!
  • Show us that your furry friends are spayed or neutered. It’s all about keeping our animal friends safe and sound.
  • Of course, you should be allowed to have pets in your home. We’re all about spreading the love.
  • You’ll be responsible for providing transportation to and from regular vet appointments for your foster pet and administer any needed medication. It’s all part of the journey!
  • Dedicate at least two hours of your day to your foster pet. They’ll appreciate the time and attention you give them.
  • Lastly, create a safe and cozy space in your home where your fosters can relax and have some personal time away from your own animals. They’ll feel right at home!

We can’t wait to welcome you to our foster family!


Bring joy

Adopt a Pet

Pet adoption benefits both the adopter and adoptee. It brings joy, love, and companionship, while providing a sense of responsibility, routine, and health benefits for the adopter. Adopted pets receive a second chance and a loving home, freeing up space in shelters to help more animals. It’s a win-win situation, creating a lasting bond.
