Foster caregivers are volunteers who care for animals in their home until they are strong enough or well enough to be made available for adoption.
VVAPL’s Foster Program requires at least an 8 week commitment. Fosters must be at least 18 years old, complete orientation, and pass a background check.
If you’d like to be considered as a foster caregiver, please complete the Foster Interest Form, and one of our staff members will be in touch.
Animals needing foster homes:
Orphaned kittens and puppies.
Underaged, self-feeding kittens and puppies (4 – 8 weeks old).
Mother cat or dog with nursing kittens or puppies.
Shy or fearful animals who need socialization.
Healthy older adult animals (who are usually already house trained) who could benefit from home care—especially in the spring and summer when the youngsters are getting the attention.
