Foster an Animal

Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster parent volunteer. Foster parents provide temporary care for cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies in their own homes. Some animals need as little as two weeks of care, while others may need care for a few months.

Fostering is flexible enough for most lifestyles and the staff at the Little Guild will custom match the animals to each foster home. By offering your time, energy, and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent home as well as help prevent overcrowding in or shelter.


Foster Home Requirements

In order to be considered for our foster program, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Have identification showing your present address
  • Have consent of all adults living in the household
  • Have consent of a landlord if you are renting

If you feel like you meet all of the requirements, please fill out the application below. We will review it and contact you shortly. Completion of this application does not guarantee that you will become a foster home of an animal in our care.

Application may be completed and submitted online, or a PDF version may be printed out and sent to the Little Guild.
