BECOME A FOSTER PARENT
Foster care volunteers provide temporary care for kittens, puppies, dogs and cats. The foster care program serves as a lifeline for those animals who come in under eight-weeks-old, very sick, injured, or needing some extra socialization or training. Our foster families provide quiet, stress-free, and loving environments, allowing every pet that is fostered through our program a better chance at a happier and healthier life with a forever family.
Some animals may only need a home for several days if they need to gain weight before surgery, while others may need several weeks of care in the case of a broken bone. By offering your time, energy and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent home as well as prevent overcrowding in our adoption center. The Maryland SPCA is always looking for foster parents to help save more animals’ lives.
