Fostering is a rewarding experience that enables you to help our most helpless animals get a second chance. The nurturing care of our fosters allows dogs and cats, kittens and puppies to regain health, learn to trust, and acquire social development in preparation for adoption. As a foster parent, you will provide temporary care for long or short periods of time for young animals (and in some cases their mothers), as well as sick, injured, under-socialized or animals that just need a place to go, until they can be safely returned to the shelter for adoption.
HAP will provide any essential supplies such as food, litter and litter box, etc., along with medical care for all HAP foster animals. You provide love, individual attention, and a stress-free environment, as well as a willingness to work with HAP medical and behavior staff to give our foster animals the best care possible.
If you have children or pets in your home, you must also have an appropriate, separate area of your home where you can keep foster animals away from them as needed.
