Fostering With Us

As we diligently attend to the healthcare needs of an increasing number of animals, we find ourselves acutely aware of the new normal we face. Our kennels are currently brimming with deserving animals, patiently waiting for their forever homes. Our foster program offers maximum flexibility and compassion, with no time limits or requirements. Each animal receives the care and attention they need, shaped by the power of foster families like yours. To make fostering seamless and enjoyable, HCHS provides all necessary supplies and training plans. Join us at our off-site events, where you can actively participate in matchmaking to help your foster pet find their perfect match. Fosters always have the first call to adopt their pet. By becoming a foster family with HCHS, you become an essential part of the journey towards creating a brighter future for these deserving animals. Your dedication and love make all the difference. Join us in making a positive impact and changing lives, one foster pet at a time!
