Thank you for visiting our Foster page!  Please complete the Foster Survey if you are interested in becoming an approved foster home.  We appreciate your time and efforts!

Our biggest need is to find homes for dogs that have specific requirements (such as being the only animal, bonded pairs, dogs with medical needs and hospice dogs).  Below are some of the dogs currently looking for foster.  We have also listed some senior cats in need of a home in case you may be a good match for one of them!

Foster Homes Needed!

Big Ben is a 10 1/2 year old bull dog mix with a goofy personality, and the cutest face you’ll ever see. He LOVES his people, and all of the folks who know him at the shelter say that he is such a character and they adore him.
 
Big Ben is house trained and can be left home alone with no issues. He is quite strong and can pull on on leash when he sees other animals, so he will need an owner who is strong and savvy. He also needs a home where he can be the one and only furry family member.
 
Big Ben is neutered and up to date on all of his vet care. He is pretty healthy for a large breed dog his age, but does have some arthritis and is currently on a pain medication called carprophen which helps him feel more comfortable.

Only pet, older children due to size.

Piper Penelope is the sweetest girl you will meet. She gets so excited when her person come into the room, evidenced by a very happy tail wag. She’s a true love bug. Sadly, her owner has to move and cannot take Piper with her.

Piper will do best in a home where she can be an only pet. She would likely do well with the older children. At 83 # she may be too much for little children. Where she bonds so well with her people, she would also like her person to be home most of the day.

Piper enjoy walks, but pulls a bit. She does well in the car. She needs continued patience with house training.

Piper is allergic to chicken, it makes her itch. Otherwise, Piper is a healthy girl. She has a fatty tumor on her tail that is not a concern.

13 years old, animals and kids OK

KOKO, a very sweet 13-year-old Siamese cat, is looking for a foster or forever home. Poor guy has been at the shelter since January and he was returned five times due to no fault of his own. Originally he was brought in because his owner passed away, another time they were moving, another time it was financial and it just keeps going. This guy needs a loving home. The shelter thinks he would do fine with other laid-back animals and and they think he would do ok with kids too. He is on a sensitive stomach food and takes thyroid meds. He is currently at the Augusta shelter.
