Foster Home Program

Crucial to Saving More Lives!


By committing to care for an HSNC animal in your home until it is ready for adoption at the shelter, you help to enrich that pets’ life, provide needed medical care and free up space at the shelter for other pets to be rescued.


  • Pregnant moms with their litters until 8 weeks old
  • Orphaned litters or individual animals, some may need bottle feeding until 8 weeks old
  • Sick, injured or surgical recovery animals needing medications and care until they are well

Get Started Today!

All supplies, instructions, and appointments will be handled by HSNC and you will remain in contact with a staff member to ensure progress and in case of an emergency. We always attempt to make the best matches for animals and fosters.

Volunteer Orientation is required to be an approved Foster Home and all necessary training will be provided per foster situation. Please download and complete our Volunteer to Foster Application and drop it off at the shelter or complete the online application below and our Volunteer Coordinator will help you get started today!
