Foster

Foster Animals for PHS

Open your heart and home to provide temporary care for a cat or dog. Animals may be placed in foster homes for a variety of reasons: illness, injury, age, and more. We can supply you with everything you need to get started, just supply the love! Foster parents are an important part of our mission, and enable us to save as many lives as possible. Not only are you giving an animal a chance to become more adoptable (by recovering from illness or injury, or learning how to behave in a home), but you are enabling us to house another homeless animal in the shelter.

If you are interested in becoming a foster, fill out our online application and we will be in touch regarding foster opportunities that suit your home environment. We will ask you to visit the shelter so we can match you with a foster animal (or animals!).
