Foster Care

Foster Care providers are volunteers who foster homeless puppies, dogs, cats and kittens in their home for a short period of time until the animals are adopted. Fosters can choose a certain breed of dog, a certain period of time (ex: summer), a certain gender or age. We can accommodate fosters and schedules in a variety of ways.

All potential foster parents must first become SICSA volunteers and attend a general volunteer orientation. Current volunteers are welcome to pursue fostering at anytime. Once a potential foster parent has turned in an application, the Foster Care Coordinator will arrange an interview. The interview allows SICSA to familiarize potential fosters with the policies, procedures, expectations, requirements and guidelines for foster care. It also allows us to determine the suitability of individuals for foster care within our organization. Once a foster parent has been accepted into the foster program, he or she will be asked to sign a SICSA Foster Contract.

Once new foster parents have completed the appropriate training, they are able to actively participate in the foster program. When SICSA receives word of animals in need of foster care, the Animal Care Coordinator will contact you and offer you a foster opportunity. If you decide to accept the foster animal(s), you will need coordinate with the Foster Care Coordinator a time when you can pick them up at SICSA.
