Thank you for considering foster care. Fostering is an important component of giving the animals in our care the best chance for a healthy life. Foster families provide temporary care for cats, kittens, dogs and puppies.
Some of the reasons animals require foster care include:
pregnant cats or dogs (while the shelter is a safe environment, litters born outside the shelter have a better chance of growing into healthy pets)
orphaned puppies or kittens
young puppies or kittens
the need for a quieter, less stressful environment to heal or rehabilitate
animals who need to work on confidence or social skils
animals who need a break from the shelter
to help open space in the shelter.
Depending on the circumstances, the duration of the foster period can be as little as a few days to 3 months.
CCHS will provide food or formula and any medications. You provide a space in your home and tender, loving care.
For more information on becoming a foster, please call us at 812-446-5126.
If you have experience and are able to commit to caring for puppies or kittens until they are 8 weeks old, please call the shelter at 812-446-5126 or stop in. The difference you can make is priceless. Thank you!!!
