When we place an animal with you, it will be solely in your care 24 hours a day. Fosters parents must be able to provide a clean, safe, secluded environment in which to care for the animal, and we ask that you treat foster animals as if they are your own.
We also ask that you respond attentively to each animal’s needs. It is crucial that foster parents work with HSBH staff members to prepare your foster animal for adoption. Some ways to help are showcasing your foster pet at HSBH events, taking good pictures of the pet, providing accurate behavioral descriptions for our website listings, and spreading the word about your adoptable foster pet via word-of-mouth and social media.
