Fostering Saves Lives!

Becoming a foster parent is just one of the many ways that you can help save lives! Opening your home to foster animals allows you to play an important part in helping our animals stay healthy and find a forever home. These special animals need kind hearts and a place to heal or grow in a temporary setting until they are ready to find their permanent home.

Our foster program is designed to help kittens and puppies who are too young to be safely housed in a shelter environment, adult dogs and cats undergoing medical treatment or recovering from surgery, and dogs or cats with minor behavioral issues that prevent them from showing well in a shelter environment. In the spring and summer months, there is an increased need for foster parents willing to offer a safe haven for precious kittens. We will provide all food and medical care for the animal(s) while they are being fostered.

Ready to open your home to an animal in need?

Please complete the Foster Sign-Up Form below! We also recommend watching our Facebook page for urgent foster needs. Foster homes must be located within 50 miles of our facility to ensure that animals can return in a timely manner for any emergency medical needs.

SLUMBER BUDDIES

Our Slumber Buddies program allows volunteers to take approved dogs for a 1-3 night stay at their home. This allows us to gain valuable information on the dogs behavior that will help us place them with adopters! Volunteers will hang with their pup, take them for walks, take lots of photos, and report back on their dog's behavior. We will set you up with food, dishes, crates, toys, etc.

Slumber Buddies Requirements:

- Safe home/apartment environment that allows pets

- Plenty of time to spend with your buddy

- Dog savvy (able to work with minor behavioral issues or strong dogs)

- For everyone's safety, most dogs will require a home with no other pets or small children

Can't have a pet long-term? Considering adopting? Just want to give back? Slumber Buddies is a great way to get your dog fix with a short-term commitment! Email Dawn at hats.community@gmail.com to get started!
