Foster a Pet

Foster_a_PetA Unique Volunteer Opportunity

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton is always looking for foster families. Typically families foster animals who aren’t ready for adoption, due to age, illness or injury. Kittens and puppies too young to be spayed or neutered are taken into foster homes and provided a loving environment until they are old enough for surgery and adoption. Animals who come to the Humane Society with injuries are provided a needed safe environment while they recover and become well enough for adoption. Foster families are also needed to provide a transitional home for animals, when space is no longer available at the main facility.

For more information on becoming a foster parent, contact Janie Davis, foster coordinator, at jdavis@hsdayton.org. You may also reach her by phone, at 937/262-5937.
