Due to the number of animals currently residing at the shelter, Heritage Humane Society is looking for volunteers to participate in its foster program.
Foster volunteers provide temporary care in their own homes for kittens, cats, puppies, dogs, and small animals that are from the shelter. The program also includes “relief care” in which animals stay with a volunteer for at least a two week period to give them a break from the shelter.
Volunteer fosters provide an invaluable service for the shelter by giving extra space to save as many animals as possible while also providing a loving home environment for animals away from the stresses of shelter life.
Foster volunteers must be at least 18 years old and live in the area. Heritage Humane Society would provide carriers/crates, bowls, bedding, toys, towels, leash/collar, food (both dry and wet), puppy pads, litter, litter box and scooper. Heritage Humane Society will also cover the costs of medical care which includes flea prevention, vaccines and veterinary trips.
