Foster Program

Foster families provide temporary homes for potentially adoptable animals while they recover from illness, injury, gain weight, mature, or moms nursing a litter.

We are always looking for families and individuals who are willing to open their homes to a shelter pet in need. Length of stay typically ranges from one to ten weeks. 

HSWM provides all essential items and vet care for foster animals.

Requirements for Foster Families

  • All owned pets must be current on vaccines and spayed / neutered
  • Rentals require landlord approval to foster
  • Must be willing to attend a foster family informational meeting with a Foster Coordinator
  • Fill out a foster application and send it to our foster team at foster@hswestmi.org
