Community Foster Program


If you have an animal for which you need to find a new home, whether it is your own animal or a stray, we may be able to help. Because we do not have a permanent, physical shelter, all of our animals are kept in individual foster homes. Most of our foster homes are filled to capacity the majority of the time, so we have established a unique program called Community Fostering. With your cooperation, this special program enables Cabarrus Pets Society to assist you in helping the animal(s).  Fill out our "surrender form" and one of our volunteers will contact you within 48 hours.

The Community Foster Program is essentially a partnership between you and Cabarrus Pets Society. We believe the program is beneficial because it allows help for animal(s) in need while dividing the responsibility between you and CPS. Cabarrus Pets Society will be responsible for the costs associated with providing food and medical care for the animal(s) and will market the animal(s) to the public. Your responsibility will be to provide a safe and loving foster home for the animal(s). We will work together in this partnership until the animal(s) is/are adopted into appropriate, permanent home(s).
