Foster Volunteer F.A.Q.

What kind of animals need foster care?
•Kittens and puppies under two months old
•Mothers with nursing litters
•Dogs and cats with medical conditions or injuries
•Special needs animals

Can I be a foster volunteer if I have pets of my own?

Absolutely! But it’s important that all your pets be up to date on their vaccinations to keep your pets and your new house guests happy and healthy. It’s also very important to make sure you foster animals have a room separate from your own animals.

How long do the animals need to stay in foster care?

The typical foster stay is two weeks to two months, depending on the needs of the individual animal(s) in your care. The time frame for each foster situation will be discussed with you ahead of time.

What expenses are involved with Foster Care?

The Sonsini Shelter provides bedding and toys, as well as all medical care for the animals in foster homes, including vaccination, medications and spay/neuter surgery. Foster families are asked to provide exercise, socialization and lots of love!
