Fostering an animal in need

Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time to become a Sanctuary at Haafsville Foster Parent! Foster homes play such an important role at our shelter, because when you foster you save 2 lives…since the animal you’re fostering frees up space at our shelter so
we can save another!

A foster home is simply a temporary safe refuge for rescued dogs and cats in order to prepare them for a new home. Foster homes are a great solution for animals who are stressed in a shelter or have special needs. Mothers with puppies or kittens and senior animals are especially vulnerable in a shelter environment and need a quiet place until the right home can be found. If you choose to foster you give these animals a second chance at life and it is truly one of the most rewarding experiences you can have!


We provide all medicine, and veterinary care for the foster animal, food and supplies if needed, and you just supply your time, energy, home and most of all LOVE!


 If you are interested in fostering the following criteria must be met:

  • The primary caregiver of the foster animal must be an adult
  • If you rent we require written approval of your landlord and contact information
  • Since we have open adoptions every Saturday, it is helpful to have foster homes that are local so the animals can be brought there for our adoption events
  • It is also required that your own animals are up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered.


If you are interested in adopting or fostering with the intent to adopt, please visit the Adopt Dogs page or the Adopt Cats page and submit an adoption application. Please submit the forms below if you're only interested in fostering.
Please click one of the buttons below to submit an application to foster dogs/puppies or foster cats/kittens.

Adoption Spotlight



**FOSTER or FOREVER home needed**
Lily was relinquished to the Sanctuary at Haafsville after her mom went to a nursing home. Lily has not been happy at the shelter and is not particularly fond of the other cats. The shelter environment isn’t optimal for her personality and dietary needs. As a result, she must stay in a cage much of the time. Lily really should be in a loving home where she is the only pet and has room to roam. She will thrive in a quiet home with people who love and understand her. Lily really is a good girl who just needs someone willing to give her a chance.
Lily is 8 to 9 years old, healthy, spayed, vaccinated, negative for FeLV/FIV, litter trained and microchipped. Lily needs to be on a diet of strictly C/D food.
