The Dubois County Humane Society is seeking foster care parents. Foster care is an opportunity to care for an animal that isn't yet ready for adoption such as kittens and puppies that are too young for adoption, orphaned kittens or puppies in need of bottle feedings which involves 24 hour care, cats and dogs that are recovering from surgery, illness or an injury, and senior pets or special needs pets that need a special home to live out the rest of their lives. We also seek out foster homes when we need to intake a new cat or dog, but our kennel space is full.
Fostering is also an opportunity for someone who loves animals and wants to help animals in need but can't make a long-term commitment. Fostering time can vary from a few days to several months. Fosters are asked to make the commitment to keep the pet until an adoption takes places. Whether a person has a small amount of time or wants to make a full-time commitment, we can match them with a pet.
