Becoming a HSSTT foster parent is one of the most helpful, heartfelt things you could possibly do for a homeless companion animal. As a foster, you provide a temporary loving home for an abandoned dog or cat until he or she finds a forever home. Many of those we rescue have lived difficult lives, and fosters are essential to showing these animals what it means to trust, feel safe, and experience comfort. Whether your foster is with you for several days or several months, the knowledge that you helped immensely will last a lifetime.
To be considered you must:
Be 21 years of age or older and have identification showing your current address
Supplies bought during foster time are tax deductible and medical bills are covered by the shelter
Have the knowledge and consent of your landlord (if applicable)
Be able and willing to spend the time necessary to provide proper care for the dog. Be able to bring them to the shelter for checkups or to meet potential owners.
