Foster Program



New foster parents TJ and Wera Ivey with their very first little foster kitten. 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 State and country.

Our problem is often a lack of space due to high intake numbers and we can only accomodate so many unwanted animals.

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 feeding, housing and watering your new foster pet. We are responsible for all of the medical costs, shots and microchip information. To help find your foster pet a new home, you can bring the pet back to the shelter on our adoption event weekends and drop them off in the hopes that a new home is found. If you choose not to go to the event yourself, you will be contacted and told about the new adopter. You can continue to help our animals in this way and choose another adoptable animal.

Only under special curcumstances do we allow puppies or kittens that are not yet altered to be fostered. All foster pets will be spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, micro chipped and ready for a new home or rescue. Any animals you own would need to have current vaccinations and be spayed or neutered.

Can you open up your home and your heart for 3 days or up to 3 weeks or more at a time to help us save these animals?
