Wanted! Foster Moms and Dads

We Can’t Do This Without Your Help

We know you’re going back to work and back to school, but we still need you, and most importantly, the animals still need you. Heartland needs foster homes for adult cats and dogs now more than ever before.

As a Heartland Foster parent, you are equipped with:

  • A designated foster mentor
  • 24/7 emergency staff contact
  • Same-day medical support, appointment availability at our shelter clinic
  • Access to a trainer or behaviorist, should a need arise
  • Supplies, if needed

When you sign up to foster a cat or a dog with Heartland, our foster team will work with you to ensure your success. Because we are a smaller operation we can give each foster and each animal the attention they deserve!

The most important reason to foster? You will be saving two lives, the animal that you take home to care for, and the animal that we save from euthanasia that fills the newly opened space at the shelter.

Please help us save even more lives this year by signing up to foster with Heartland here!

If you are unable to foster at this time, please help us spread the word about our need for foster homes by telling people you know or sharing our social media posts. Thank you for all of your help!
