The HSBH foster program is an on-call/as-needed position. Foster animals may stay in their temporary homes from one night to a few weeks, or sometimes up to a few months. It depends entirely on the needs of each particular animal and the amount of time each foster family can commit to the process.
Prior to the placement of an animal, we will tell foster families the breed/species of the animal, its needs, and its expected length of stay. We will also work with you to find the best possible match for your family and lifestyle. Each time you are contacted, we will allow you time to consider whether or not you can meet the needs of a particular animal, and you are never obligated to foster any animal.
