We are currently in need of foster care volunteers to foster animals that are too young for adoption, pregnant, nursing, sick or have behavioral issues. Foster care is generally short term and is a very rewarding experience!
For more information call 706-343-9977.
Foster Pet Volunteer
Foster pet homes provide an invaluable service to animals needing individualized care and socialization prior to being eligible for adoption. We provide all the basic supplies you'll need to foster, as well as vaccinations and preventative treatments.
HSMC pets in the greatest need are:
- Cats or kittens awaiting spay/neuter surgery.
- Animals with special health needs, such as dogs with heartworms or those recovering from surgery.
- Nursing puppies and kittens.
Volunteers interested in becoming foster pet volunteers are required to go through the standard volunteer application process. If you are interested please apply to volunteer at the appropriate site here.
All foster pet volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Interested foster pet volunteers must commit to a minimum of one year. The length of time an animal needs foster care depends on the needs of the individual animal, but typically ranges from 2 to 8 weeks.
