The Safe Harbor Foster Care Program

Thank you for your interest in the Safe Harbor Foster Care Program. We appreciate your willingness to open your heart and home to homeless animals. Your dedication allows our organization to rescue animals that we would otherwise have to turn away due to lack of space in our existing foster homes or sanctuary.

The overall mission of the Foster Care Program is to give animals individualized care and socialization to ensure that they will be easy to place in new homes and will be adopted by families that can best meet their needs.

Specific Goals of the Program:

  • Provide a safe, healthy, nurturing environment for mother animals to raise their young.
  • Give our long-term residents time away from the shelter in a home setting.
  • Socialize shy or timid animals.
  • Allow sick or injured animals to heal in a caring, reduced-stress environment.
  • Nurse and bottle feeding orphaned or abandoned kittens.

If you are interested, please read and understand the policies in the Foster Agreement that you would be asked to follow, then download our Foster Home Application.

Once complete (print clearly, please!) and signed, the application can be mailed or FAXed to us at addresses shown at the top of the form.
