Foster Care Saves Hundreds of Lives Each Year

Open your home and heart to a foster pet and give one of our most vulnerable animals a second chance. Animals in our foster program range from only a few days old to some of our most senior pets. Typically, animals that need a foster the most are abandoned litters of puppies and kittens, shy adult cats, animals recovering from medical procedures, and neglected or abused pets who need help coming out of their shells. 

We Provide:

  • All necessary veterinary care for animals in our foster program, including medications, vaccinations and medical care

  • Plenty of support from staff and volunteers

  • Supplies that are necessary based on the animal's condition

You Provide:

  • Your time and space in your home

  • Lots of love

Foster parents must be available to pick up and drop off the pet at HES as needed and bring animals back for placement in a forever home when the time is right.
