Process of Fostering
You get to show them what a family life feels like, what a warm blanket and bed with toys is all about. You get to introduce them to family time and walks, treats, snuggles and cuddles and how it feels to be loved.

- For some families it’s also an opportunity to be able to have an animal short term when they have the time. Sometimes life is too busy and it's just not the right time to commit to an animal for 10-15 years. Fostering is a way to have an animal temporarily when you do have some extra time and enjoy the pet owner experience while helping an animal in need. We provide everything the animal requires while in your care including food, toys, blankets, a kennel if you need one, collar/leash, treats, litter, litter box as well as any medical related items that may be required. You provide the love and affection and attention.
- Please understand that many of our shelter animals come to us having had little previous human contact, which leads them to be timid, scared and unsure of most situations., They may want to hide, will not let you touch them for any length of time, etc. We have resources to help in these situation. We try not to move animals between foster homes because the more we move animals around, the longer it takes for them to overcome their fears.
- Please understand that most of our animals have not been fully vaccinated, dewormed, or spayed/neutered when they arrive. Battlefords Humane Society provides the necessary veterinary care needed, however there is a possibility that your foster animal may be carrying parasites such as worms, fleas, ticks, or mange when they initially arrive in your home. In unusual circumstances, they could also be carrying viruses such as parvo or distemper. This is why it is important that all of your pets be up to date on their vaccines and deworming. In addition, we recommend keeping your foster animal separate from your own pets until checked by a vet.
