Animals come into the shelter for various reasons, some are ready to be adopted while others may be too young, have health concerns or just aren’t adapting well to the shelter environment.  We rely on our foster families to care for these animals until they are ready to be made available for adoption. The foster program is not intended as a trial period for a potential adoption.

Please contact our Adoption Coordinator

Application Process:

  • Background check

  • Vaccinations for current animals verified with veterinarian

If your application is approved we hold it and contact you when an animal is in need of a foster home.
