Opening your home temporarily to an animal from Elmbrook Humane Society is a special way to show your passion for helping animals. Many of the animals looking for foster homes face challenges that can best be overcome with the loving support of our fantastic foster volunteers. Our foster homes also provide us the opportunity to free up more kennels to help even more animals that are in need of care.
As a foster volunteer you may host animals with special medical or behavioral needs, puppies or kittens in need of special feeding and socialization, or mother animals with nursing litters. By fostering a homeless animal you are providing rehabilitation in a nurturing home environment and directly preparing them for adoption into a loving home.
