Foster Program

Do you want to help animals but don’t have the time to come volunteer at Harbor? Maybe you need your animal fix, but cannot commit to adopting during this time? Fostering might be right for you!

Harbor Humane will equip you with the knowledge and materials you need prior to fostering, so first time fosters are welcome!

Felines

Our largest need is caregivers for motherless kittens during the spring and summer months. Average length for fostering kittens is around 4 weeks, but fostering length can vary per each scenario. If you are interested, please send your foster application to sheltermanager@harborhumane.org or email with any questions.

Canines

Sometimes certain dogs need a break from the shelter more than others, and fostering can range from one night, to a long term length! It helps with their mentality immensely.

Occasionally Harbor helps out other organizations by taking in transfers of puppies, and we need fosters to house the puppies outside of the shelter to protect their immune systems and make sure they are healthy. Fostering length can vary from a few days, to a few weeks. If you are interested, please send your foster application to behavior@harborhumane.org or email with any questions.
