Animal Services does not have a foster program, however, Foster Care Programs are a critical piece of lifesaving efforts. When an animal is sick or injured or just needs someone to teach it basic manners and basic training, foster parents help fill the gap between the time the animal is brought into the Animal Services Shelter and the time they are adopted. Foster parents can choose to foster the dog or cat that best fits in with their family's home. There are also times when the shelters have cats and dogs who are ill or injured and need a short recuperative stay in someone’s home until they are adoptable. We need foster homes to help us save lives.

In hopes of saving as many pets as possible, Animal Services joined forces with Rescue Groups to help the animals in our care until they can be placed in forever homes.

Listed below are rescue groups that welcome your assistance in the fostering our pets.
