The WHS foster care program operates in an attempt to give each animal a fair opportunity to be placed into our adoption program.
You provide a shelter animal with a temporary home – we provide all supplies needed until the animal can be returned to the shelter for adoption. Fostering is a fulfilling and rewarding volunteer job that you can do in your own home.
The Foster Care Program provides everything that is needed for the care of the animals while in a foster home. The only thing that a potential Foster Parent needs is a separate room (spare room, laundry room, bathroom, etc) to quarantine from other animals in the home, and lots of love and attention. The work is hard, but the payoff to see your foster animal go into their home is worth it!
Note: If you live outside of Winnipeg, you can still foster for us! You just need to be able to transport your foster pets into the city for check-ups and supplies.
We are currently looking for foster parents to become a part of our program for cats & kittens (with and without 'moms').
