Foster Program

We are often in need of a temporary home for an animal for various reasons.  Maybe the shelter is just too full at the moment and we need to house animals for a short time while space opens up. Or maybe there’s an animal that needs extra TLC before becoming available for adoption.

We also offer fostering for community members who, due to some unforeseen crisis, need temporary housing for their animals. This program helps Windham County residents who face medical, housing, or other emergencies keep their animals long term by providing short term housing until the crisis passes.

Foster families are matched with animals as the need arises.  We welcome interested people to put a foster application on file so that we can contact you when we have an animal that might match your household.

Potential foster families can identify which situations and animals they are interested in on their application.

WCHS provides all food, medicines, and medical care for animals in foster.
