Incomplete applications will not be considered.

The Humane Society of Union County served over 275 animals in 2006. Unfortunately, there are an astonishing number of homeless animals in need in our community. Many animals that come into our care often have special needs. by fostering we can save many more livesSome have extensive medical needs, others may need behavioral guidance and many simply need time to find a family to share the rest of their life with. Our Foster Care Program gives these animals a second chance. by fostering we can save many more lives

Due to their special medical or behavioral needs these animals may require numerous vet visits, administration of medication, and/or time spent working on behavioral needs (crate training, developing appropriate house manners, socialization, etc.) In an effort to make fostering a rewarding experience for our Foster Care families, we have instituted the following Guidelines and also require a home visit to families considering this rewarding opportunity. This visit provides an opportunity for an experienced Foster Care Volunteer to evaluate the space that will be used for a foster animal and address any questions or concerns. If you are interested in fostering, please read the following Foster Guidelines and complete our Fostering Application.


Foster Guidelines

1) All animals accepted into the Foster Care program must be approved by the Executive Board or President. Upon approval, animals are then assigned to the appropriate Foster home based on their needs.
2) All Foster homes must have personal pets spayed/neutered unless approved by Executive Board.
3) Animals removed from shelter or with no medical history should be quarantined for a period of two weeks.
4) Foster care animals must receive all necessary vet work by a HSUC pre-approved vet in a timely manner. No second party billing will be made through HSUC. Billing will be directly to HSUC.
5) Foster home must be willing to provide food, general comforts and a safe, nurturing environment to foster animals.
6) When foster animal is ready for adoption, Foster home will assist Adoption Counselor with placement in a pre-approved home. This may require potential adopters to visit with their family at the foster care home.
7) If Foster home chooses to adopt, adoption agreement and adoption fee should be submitted within two months.
