Become A Foster Parent

Ani­mals who are too young or too sick to be placed up for adop­tion find refuge with our fos­ter care fam­i­lies. Fos­ter homes also pro­vide a safe haven for ani­mals who have been neglected or abused and are being held as evi­dence in ongo­ing court cases. Ani­mals who are part of our fos­ter care pro­gram ben­e­fit from the indi­vid­u­al­ized atten­tion that they receive in a home envi­ron­ment. The Humane League cur­rently has over 100 active fos­ter fam­i­lies who pro­vide care for nearly 800 ani­mals each year. Each ani­mal who is part of our unique fos­ter care pro­gram is one more home­less pet who has a sec­ond chance at find­ing a lov­ing and per­ma­nent home.

Designed to help those ani­mals who do not do well in a tra­di­tional shel­ter set­ting, the Fos­ter to Home Pro­gram will remove dogs and cats from the often stress­ful shel­ter envi­ron­ment and place them into fos­ter homes where their indi­vid­ual needs can be met. In addi­tion, the Fos­ter to Home Pro­gram will enlist fos­ter par­ents to act as adop­tion agents so that the ani­mal never has to return to the shel­ter and can tran­si­tion from the fos­ter home directly into life with his or her newly adopted fam­ily.  For more infor­ma­tion, read the detailed pro­gram descrip­tion (PDF).
