Foster families are an integral part of HSHA because they provide temporary homes for animals that we may not be able to care for in the shelter environment. Fostering is a very rewarding experience. HSHA provides foster families with all of the education and supplies they need. In turn, foster families provide the love and attention that many foster animals need. Foster families provide temporary homes for animals for a variety of reasons, including:
Foster families should be able to provide an area in their home that is isolated from other pets. Other pets should be up-to-date on all vaccines. HSHA will never ask a foster family to house an animal that may not be a "good match" for that family.
