Humane Society of Stillwater Foster Program
The Humane Society of Stillwater is always looking for volunteers to act as foster parents for some of our special needs residents. Fostering a shelter animal can be a rewarding experience for both people and animals.
While we do our best to make the Shelter as comfortable and stress free for our residents, some animals have a hard time adjusting to a Shelter environment or need extra care that we simply cannot provide. Foster parenting offers a crucial support system to a no-kill shelter operation. Animals which need foster care can vary from bottle feeding kittens to dogs recovering from surgery or heartworm treatment. Often times, our long term residents just need to experience living in a home for a bit so that we can give potential adopters as much information about them as possible.
Foster terms may range from one week to several months, depending on the needs of the animal as well as the availability of the foster parent. To become a foster home please fill out our foster application and turn it in to the office during normal business hours.
