Become a Foster Pet Parent!



The Douglas County Animal Shelter is in need of Foster parents!

Want to make the world a better place in one easy step? Take home a foster pet from a local shelter or rescue group.

Fostering means bringing in a cat or dog — or parrot, or baby pig, or any other homeless pet — with the goal of nurturing them for a while until they can be dispatched to a permanent home with a family who’ll love them forever.

It’s a crucial part of the animal rescue world. It’s also amazing, for you and for the animals. Here’s why!
