Become A Foster

About Fostering for HSLM

Most animals do much better in a home than in the shelter environment, and certain animals with medical and behavioural needs rely on the care that only a foster volunteer can give. You won’t be alone in caring for your foster animal. We provide all the food, supplies, medications and veterinary care the animal needs. The only cost to you is your time and sharing your home with a furry friend who needs your help!
