Foster Program

Are you considering opening your home and heart to a pet in need? Whether you foster a kitten or puppy who needs some time to grow or an adult cat or dog who needs a little extra TLC, you make it possible for us to provide the very best care for all of our residents at St. Joseph Animal Control and Rescue. Fostering is messy, rewarding, stinky, adorable, and sometimes a heartbreaking job. We certainly could not provide the level of care we do without our foster homes. 

The guiding mission of the St. Joseph Animal Shelter Foster Care Program is to give shelter pets the individualized care, and socialization they need to prepare them for adoption. Information gathered during the foster process helps us place pets in homes and with families who can best meet their needs.  

If  you are interested in fostering for the St. Joseph Animal Shelter, please complete the foster application form. Once we have received the form a member of our team will contact you via phone or email to introduce ourselves and to inform you of any upcoming foster training or if any of our animals that are available for foster would fit your household.

Please view the foster FAQs for more information about fostering for St. Joseph Animal Control and Rescue. If you have any additional questions, please email or call 271-4877.
