Foster Animals In Need

MHCSPCA Foster Program

Our foster program is an extension of our shelter, aimed to save those animals that depend on additional care for their survival and/or eventual adoption: orphaned kittens and puppies, nursing mothers, those animals recovering from major surgery or those that simply need someone to spend some time with them to train or socialize them.

An approved foster home that is willing and equipped to offer such care that is often impossible in the shelter environment makes the difference in these animals lives and in the lives of the humans who eventually adopt them.

Because of the generosity and big hearts of those who foster animals for us, we have been able to save and adopt out several puppies, dogs, and kittens that would have had very little chance at survival and/or adoption otherwise. It can be a lot of work to nurse the orphaned puppies throughout the night, or medicate sick kittens, or clean up after a nursing mother and her six pups, or work with the dog that has never had a moment of training in its life, but for those who are willing and able, it can be a learning and gratifying experience. Just ask the foster moms who convert their guest bathroom into a miniature Kitty City.
