When the Shelter chose to close in March for the well-being of our staff, volunteers and community, we had more than 100 pets in our care and needed to find them more comfortable and nurturing places to stay.


Without hesitation, our amazing foster volunteers stepped up – opening their hearts and homes to our cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies and providing them with the very best of care while they remained in quarantine.

Year after year, foster families provide a temporary reprieve from the stressful shelter environment for nearly 500 animals, allowing them to acclimate to a home environment and prepare for adoption. 

Foster parents save lives – and they came to our rescue when our pets needed them most.  We cannot thank them enough for their kindness!
