Animals Generally Needing a Foster

Foster Sitters

Animals needing a Foster Sitter are already in a foster home, but their foster human needs to be out of time for a short period. Rather than the animal returning to the shelter for that short time, we prefer to place these animals with a Foster Sitter. Each post will show the time frame needed.

Healing & Comfort

These animals are awaiting or have recently undergone a veterinary procedure and we think they’d heal and recover best in a foster home. Click on each animal to see what their specific needs are. Our team is happy to help describe each animal’s needs in detail – oftentimes it’s just a cozy, quiet place to rest for a 2-4 weeks.

Trust & Socialization

These animals are needing some extra time and care learning to build trust with humans. Fosters offer lots of patience and a calm environment for the animals to get more socialized in a home environment. Our Foster and Behavior teams are here to support you every step of the way!

Young Families

These animals are young moms with babies, and sometimes babies without moms. Because these infants don’t have the immune systems of fully vaccinated animals, we want them to be able to grow and socialize outside of the shelter environment. Our Foster team is here to support you every step of the way!
