We are currently in need of foster homes 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.

Fostering

Foster 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:

  • Animals awaiting spay/neuter surgery.
  • Animals with special health needs, such as dogs with heartworms or those recovering from surgery.
  • Nursing puppies and kittens.

Anyone interested in becoming a foster is required to fill out USDA paperwork and have a bi-annual home check done by an HSMC staff member prior to fostering. If you are interested, please give us a call at 706-343-9977!

All fosters must be at least 18 years of age. The length of time an animal needs foster care depends on the needs of the individual animal, but typically ranges from 2 weeks to 3 months.
