HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Help us in our mission of saving animals’ lives by becoming a Foster Care volunteer. Together we save the lives of many young animals by preparing them for adoption and opening space in the shelter.

DESCRIPTION

We rely on a dedicated group of foster volunteers to help us in our mission of saving animals’ lives. While we provide the training, supplies, veterinary care and support, our volunteers provide the open hearts and homes. Together we save the lives of many young animals by preparing them for adoption and opening space in the shelter. Foster care programs include Kitten Season Lifesavers, Adoption Ambassadors, TLC Foster Homes, and Transport Fosters.


ITEMS NEEDED

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

The typical foster commitment is 2 to 8 weeks but may vary depending on the animal’s needs.
