Thank you for your interest in fostering with
Aggieland Humane Society!

Our foster program was created to provide animals with an opportunity to heal, grow, and have a second chance at finding their forever homes. Below you will find some of our frequently asked questions and more information on our general fostering needs. 

If you are interested in becoming a foster, click the link in the top right corner!



What are my responsibilities as a foster?
Fosters will care for their pet daily with supplies provided by AgHS. You will also provide updates on new things you learn about the pet that will help them to be adopted (personality, quirks, etc.) and potentially complete an adoption with their new forever family.

Can I foster if I already own pets or rent my home?
In most cases, yes! As long as you are able to have pets live on your property, we can typically find a suitable foster match for you!

Do I have to provide food or pay for medical care for my foster?
We provide all the supplies and resources you need to foster, including medical care. (medical care is for foster pets only and does not extend to owned pets). You provide the space and the love and we provide the rest!

Can I choose which pet I foster?
We have a wide variety of pets needing foster homes. We will use the information on your application to match you with pets needing homes and then set up a meet and greet to find the best fit. If you have a preference, let us know, but we cannot also accommodate your request.

Can I adopt my foster pet?
Although this is not a foster-to-adopt program, we do have some fosters who decide their pet has accidentally found their forever home. If this happens, you can apply to adopt your foster pet but are not given preference over other adopters who may have already applied.

General Fostering Needs

Adult dogs

Adult dogs are put into foster for a variety of reasons. Some just need a vacation from the shelter while others may have medical needs, are awaiting transfer to another agency, or are being prepared for a special event. 

Adult cats

Adult cats are put into foster for a variety of reasons. Some just need a vacation from the shelter while others may have medical needs, are awaiting transfer to another agency, or are being prepared for a special event. 

Puppies

Puppies needing foster homes are typically healthy animals that just need some time to grow. Animals must be 8 weeks old before they can be adopted out. Puppies are typically in foster for 2 - 6 weeks and have a variety of needs depending on their age.

Kittens

Kittens needing foster homes are typically healthy animals that just need some time to grow. Animals must be 8 weeks old before they can be adopted out. Kittens are typically in foster for 2 - 6 weeks and have a variety of needs depending on their age.

Moms with puppies

While some puppies come in on their own, we also have expecting mothers or moms with puppies come into our care. These families need time in a foster home to make sure the puppies are growing as expected and that they are properly weaned from mom. This helps keep mom and babies healthy until they are all ready for adoption.
