Foster Program

Kitten season is here and special needs kittens depend on foster homes who can give them the extra time and care that they need. If you are willing to learn and have a passion for animals, please consider putting in a foster application. It truly saves lives!!

Many of the animals that leave Scotland County Humane Society/J.D & Fran Asher Animal Shelter are saved by adopters and animal rescue groups all over the country.

Temporary Fostering can provide the shelter animals a loving family that helps socialize them making them more adoptable as well as make valuable space to save lives.   If you decide to foster for SCHS, you will be responsible for the daily care of your new foster. We are responsible for all of the medical care. 

Only under special circumstances do we allow puppies or kittens that are not yet altered to be fostered. All fosters will be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccines, micro chipped and ready for a new home or rescue. Any animals currently in your home would need to be up to date on vaccinations and spayed or neutered.

Please complete our adoption/foster application if you are interested in fostering!  Our Foster Coordinator will contact you or you can email for more information.
