There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays

This holiday season, open your heart and home to one of our wonderful animals to give them a temporary break from shelter life. In return, you will enjoy the gift of a furry companion this holiday season.

How it works:

1. Complete a foster application online
2. Bring all family members to meet your foster pet
3. Pick up your foster animal between December 18th – 24th
4. Return your foster to the shelter starting December 26th

HSHC provides all supplies needed for fostering. This includes beds, food, toys, leash and collar, medications, and more. We also provide all medical and behavior care needed while the pet is in your home. You will have access to our team 24 hours a day in case of any emergency that may arise.


The Home for the Holidays Foster Edition Application is now closed. Thank you for your interest in the program. If you are interested in becoming a foster, please apply below.

Love & Let Live

Every animal deserves a second chance at love — and life. We invite you to be part of the solution and give back to the animals who give us so much.
