Fostering Saves Lives- Become a Foster Today!

Do you have some extra love to share? Consider opening your heart and home to a foster dog or cat. Our wonderful fosters provide a loving safe home where our dogs and cats can decompress, heal and learn to trust humans again.

Fostering prepares our animals for a successful and forever adoption. For the fosters, you get to play, love, snuggle and get as many wet nose kisses as you want without the lifelong financial commitment. 

Our fosters are SUPERHEROES! Are you ready for your cape?

What is fostering? It means to temporarily open your home to a dog or cat in need and provide love, care, treatment and training while waiting for its forever home. 

Who can foster? We welcome anyone 21 years or older to apply. No experience necessary!  

How long will I keep them? Short   term can be a couple of days and long-term fostering can be weeks to months. 

What are the requirements?

  • All other household pets must be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations including Bordetella 
  • A safe environment: A fenced yard may be required for some large breed dogs
  • Must bring their foster animals to adoption events & be available to meet with potential adopters 
  • Must provide regular updates on foster's health and behavior
  • If you rent, we must verify pet policy with your landlord

​What are some of the foster's responsibilities?  We ask fosters to work on house/potty training, basic commands, socialization and manners. We ask that all foster dogs attend adoption events. 

Can a foster choose the animal? Yes, CPS works with each foster to find the dog or cat that will work for them. If it is not working, we will move it. 

What We Provide- Everything!  Crates, Gates, Toys, Food, Medication, Training and 24-hour Support

What Do You Provide?  Love and Kindness
