Fostering is a great way to help an animal in need! Griffin Pond Animal Shelter needs volunteers to provide short-term in-home care for animals in need of special care. With pre-approved authorization from Griffin Pond Animal Shelter management, all veterinary care for foster animals is paid by the shelter. Food and litter may also be provided. Fostering can last from a few weeks to several months.
Which animals are in need of foster care?
Not all adoptable animals are in need of fostering. Some animals are highly adoptable and ready to go to their new forever home immediately. In this case, the shelter is the best place for them to be placed because of the high volume of people coming to the shelter to look at adoptable animals on a daily basis.
