Onslow County Animal Services maintains a foster program in order to improve the lives of animals in its care. Foster homes provide short-term accommodations to animals in need, which provide immeasurable benefits to both the foster family and the pet.

The primary qualifications for a foster parent are love and time. Any animals in the household must be spayed/neutered and up-to-date on veterinary care. Once approved as a foster parent, the Foster Coordinator will help select the best foster fit for the household. 

Please email our Foster Coordinator for further details. If you wish to apply to become a foster, please come in to the shelter during business hours to start the application process.
