Thank you for your interest in the Foster Program at HSHV!
What is Fostering?
Our Foster Families provide temporary in-home care for animals until they are ready to return to the shelter, or are adopted.
Foster Families help us provide the best possible care for all our animals, and play a very important role in HSHV's highly successful adoption rates.
All veterinary care, food and other animal supplies are provided by HSHV. Fostering can last from a few days to several months depending on the needs of the animals and the availability of the Foster Family. Extra training is provided for unique circumstances and medical assistance and questions are handled very quickly.
