Foster

Our foster program is one of the most powerful tools we have to make a difference for our animals. The foster program is a vital component in improving the lives of the animals in our care and increasing adoption rates. Foster homes provide short-term accommodations to animals in need, which provides immeasurable benefits to both the foster animal and family.

The primary qualifications for becoming a foster parent are love and time. Any animals in the foster household must be spayed/neutered and up-to-date on veterinary care. Once references have been checked and you have been approved as a foster parent, the Foster Coordinator will help you to select the best foster fit for your household. 
 
We are always in need of new foster families to care for puppies, kittens cats and dogs. We will provide you with the tools you need for success, you provide the love!


If you are interested in becoming an OCAS foster, and have any questions regarding the program, please email our Foster Coordinator . If you wish to apply to become a foster, please come in to the shelter during business hours to begin the application process.
