Fostering Animals

Fostering an animal is an amazing and rewarding experience. Our shelter provides animals with the utmost care, but there truly is no place like a home. Foster homes are essential to the rehabilitation and socialization of sick, injured, or abused animals. When you foster, you will help an animal recover from past trauma, transforming them into a loving companion pet. You will assess an animal’s personality, helping our Adoption Specialists ensure that pets find a home right for them. And you will free up space at our shelter, allowing C. A. O. S. to help more animals in need. Becoming a foster is easy. C. A. O. S. provides you with all the medication, equipment, and support you need to foster an animal. Join C. A. O. S. as a foster and help save animal lives today!
