Foster Care

Foster Volunteers provide care for homeless puppies, dogs, cats and kittens in their home for a short period of time until the animals are adopted. We can accommodate foster volunteers and schedules in a variety of ways. Foster Volunteers can choose a certain breed, period of time, gender, or age.

Watch our video about two newborn puppies' journey from a loving foster home to adoption to learn about the best benefit of fostering: saving lives.

How to Become a Foster Volunteer

All potential Foster Volunteers should first become SICSA Volunteers and attend a general volunteer orientation. Volunteers will then submit a foster program application and undergo an interview process to determine their suitability for the SICSA Foster program. Once approved, they will attend a formal Foster training to familiarize potential Foster Volunteers with the policies, procedures, expectations, requirements and guidelines for foster care.

Once new Foster Volunteers have completed the appropriate training, they are able to actively participate in the program. When SICSA receives word of animals in need of foster care, the Foster Coordinator will contact you and offer you a foster opportunity.
