Animal Foster Care - Temporary In-Home Care for Cats and Dogs

Get Connected Icon ongoing


The Brown County Humane Society needs volunteers to provide temporary care for animals in need.

BCHS places cats and dogs in foster homes when they need a little extra care: a few days to recover from surgery; a few weeks to grow up; some time to receive medical treatment; a place to rest away from the noise and activity at the shelter.

For some animals, time away from the shelter is what gives them the best chance. Because our foster animals need a little extra care, we work carefully with our volunteers to find the right fit for their home and schedule, and they receive plenty of support. Our foster volunteers are a crucial part of our highly successful adoption program.

Fosters are especially needed as kitten season approaches.
