Thanks to the generosity of our community, almost all of our eligible animals are currently enjoying some time in a loving foster home.
This wonderful news means that we are moving to an on-call foster system. We are still continuing to provide shelter for animals in need. As animals are seen by our veterinary staff, they will be made available for foster care. If you are a new foster caregiver interested in fostering, please submit an application here. Please be as specific as possible with any foster animal preferences.
If you are a current SPCA foster caregiver please email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to be added to the on call foster list. Please be as specific as possible as with any foster animal preferences.
Staff will review your applications and call you if/when an animal you might be interested in fostering becomes available.
For the well-being of our our staff, volunteers and visitors, foster pick-ups are being done by appointment only. Please do not visit the shelter with general foster inquiries.
Thank you for your patience and support during this time.
