Foster a Pet


We are often in need of a temporary home for an animal for various reasons.  Maybe the shelter is full and we need to temporarily house animals until space opens up or an animal may need extra TLC before going up for adoption.

We strive to find foster homes 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.

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.

The Windham County Humane Society provides all food, medicines, and medical care for animals in foster.
