Fostering

Our At-Home Fostering program provides a temporary home for injured, young or special-needs animals. It may be a mama cat or dog with a new born litter, or an animal recovering from medical treatment that needs a quiet, nurturing place to stay. We also need homes for animals that require more socialization and human interaction. You can apply by filling out our Foster Application and if you have any questions please email AStanley@shelbyhumane.org.

We also have an Adoption Ambassador program that allows us to use one of our greatest resource, YOU. It allows you to be the adoption counselor and gives you the ability to choose who adopts your foster. If no home is found, however, you will become the animal’s indefinite foster parent until they are adopted.
