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

 

For PUPPY and/or ADULT DOG fostering, please view our Facebook page.  As puppies and adult dogs become available for fostering, a post is made with contact information.

 

For KITTEN and/or ADULT CAT fostering, please fill out the Feline Foster application below and someone will be in contact with you.

Shelly
Over a year ago, we got a call from the police that a cat had been abandoned in the middle of the sidewalk in a carrier. After checking with neighbors and making sure she didn't have a microchip, we welcomed her into our community.
 
We named her Shelly for Shel Silverstein because her sidewalk ended at the Sanctuary. Shelly, while adorable and affectionate with people, had a strong dislike for other cats. At the shelter, she was very anxious. However, one of our volunteers saw what a great cat Shelly is and offered to foster her. 
 
Shelly has absolutely thrived in her foster home! This is what her foster mom had to say. "She is so content to sit on your lap and snooze away. Her favorite toy is a crinkly tunnel so she can hide and pounce. Unfortunately she doesn't do well around other cats. She desperately wants to be next to her person all day long but gets anxious when other cats come near."
 
Shelly will make an incredible companion in a one cat household. Her foster home does have other cats and is not the right long term fit for her.
 
After being abandoned and anxious, Shelly deserves the very best life! We know that one cat homes can be a challenge to find but we also believe that Shelly's perfect home is out there. If you are looking for a cat to snuggle on your lap, make you laugh with her antics, and complete your family, Shelly is the girl for you!
 
Shelly is about 2 years old, healthy, spayed, vaccinated, negative for FeLV / FIV, litter trained and microchipped.
 
Shelly's sidewalk led to the Sanctuary but her journey certainly hasn't ended. Her next path leads straight to her forever family!
