Giving comfort and care in your home

Thank you for your interest in fostering with us! It takes a lot to bring an animal into your home; it’s an incredible way to help an at-risk animal get back on its paws in loving comfort.

We value your support by fostering and want to help make it a rewarding and worthwhile experience for you – and FOR THE ANIMAL!

There are varied degrees of fostering that have to do with the animals’ needs blended with your commitment level. Our goal is to pair the right animal with you and your home so that everyone succeeds. For cats and kittens, CCHS will provide all the supplies — pet food, beds, toys, etc; for dogs and puppies, you will partner with CCAS for necessary supplies. 

Once we receive your application, a CCHS team member will be in touch.
