Animal Services does not have a foster program, however Foster Care Programs are a critical piece of lifesaving efforts. Foster parents help fill the gap between when the animal is brought to the Animal Services Shelter and when they are adopted. Foster parents can choose to foster a dog or cat that best fits in their family to help with socialization, basic training, or offer recuperation time for sick or injured pets before adoption. We need foster homes to help us save lives.

In hopes of saving as many pets as possible, Animal Services partners with various rescue groups who have foster programs to better serve our animal population. Listed below are rescue groups that welcome your assistance in the fostering our pets.
