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.

- All owned pets must be current on vaccines and spayed or neutered.

- Rentals require landlord approval to foster.

- Must be willing to attend a foster family informational meeting with a Foster Coordinator.
