Introducing CHS's new Foster a Shelter Pet Program!

We are striving to make volunteer foster parents a critical part of our animal care program. With dedicated foster parents, we can better help many animals in finding a permanent, responsible and loving home.

The time committment of foster parenting depends specifically on the needs of the animal.  A cat recuperating from orthopedic surgery may need a shorter time than a day old puppy or kitten who will need at least six to eight weeks of fostering.

To make a difference in a shelter pet’s life and become a foster parent please download the foster application and bring it to the shelter or mail it to us at:

Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster parent!
