What is SOS Foster?

When the space in our shelter becomes limited due to the high population of animals, we urgently need the community to open their hearts and homes for ~2 weeks, to open up space for new animals.

What's SOS Foster vs. Regular Foster?

For SOS Foster, we need to move the population of animals, so we require no training. We will pair you with a dog or cat that matches your lifestyle.

Why is it urgent?

High population = High stress. Many animals in the shelter start to show signs of mental decline. It means they need to be removed from the stressors of the shelter (at least for a temporary period). Mental decline can quickly lead to undesired behavior issues.

I've never fostered before. I don't think I can help.

Now is the PERFECT time to dip your toe into fostering! These animals need you; we need you! You don’t need any training and we’ll set you up with the necessities (like food and meds) to get you started!

Who is available to foster?
