Foster care is needed for animals that come in pregnant, haven't reached two months of age or are recuperating from an illness or injury. Foster parents take responsibility and provide a safe environment and loving home for the animal(s) until they are able to go up for adoption.

While you are fostering the SFAHS provides basic necessities for their care including: 
- Food
- Litter (if necessary)
- Kennels
- Food/Water Bowls
- Blankets
- Mediciations (if necessary)

If you are interested in becoming a foster, please download the application and submit it to the shelter at the mailing address below, or stop by to drop it off. 

After you application has been received and approved, you'll be contacted by email or phone by our foster coordinator when we have animals that we need to place in foster care!
