**Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to be an emergency foster during the COVID-19 outbreak. We currently have more applicants than animals needing foster homes. If you submitted an application but were not contacted, please note that we will keep your application on file for future openings.**
The first step to becoming a foster parent is to fill out an online application. Once your application is processed, you will receive an email containing important information that will start you on your journey to becoming a foster parent.
It happens. You bring an animal into your home for what’s supposed to be a temporary stay, then you find yourself realizing this animal deserves a permanent place in your home. We call these “Foster Failures,” and we have seen many furever matches made this way. Keep in mind that fosters-turned-adopters still need to complete all adoption paperwork and pay all adoption fees.
HSSC's Foster Program is a proud recipient of grant funding from Maddie's Fund®, helping to achieve a no-kill nation #ThanksToMaddie. Maddie's Fund is a national family foundation established by Dave and Cheryl Duffield to revolutionize the status and well-being of companion animals.
