How Fostering Works

When an animal is in need of foster care, a pre-approved foster family is contacted to care for that animal. The foster parent may be required to bring the animal back to the shelter periodically for check-ups and vaccinations during the time they are fostering. Lake Humane Society will provide the foster family with the materials needed to foster such as food, bowls, litter, blankets, toys, and other supplies. While the animal is in the foster program, LHS will be responsible for all of the animal’s medical treatment (including medications and vaccinations). If you are interested in becoming a foster for LHS, the first step is completing our volunteer application. Once you have submitted your application, you will be contacted by the Foster Coordinator and a short interview will be arranged. Our Foster Program helps us save more lives and you can be a part of that! To apply to become a foster family fill out our online application!
