Forster care is a very important necessity for all rescue groups.  Fostering gives pets a chance to enjoy a low-stress environment during a very difficult time in their lives.  For our facility, fostering provides a safe haven for pets with medical and behavioral concerns.  These selflessly devoted volunteers then provide sanctuary and continuous care for pets who require a more one on one approach to their care.  Examples are, but are not limited to; pregnancy, pregnancy and weaning, heart-worm disease, FIV, anxiety, bottle feeders and so much more.

We are looking for long-term fosters who will be able to accommodate a pet in need throughout their treatment, up until they are adopted.  Our goal is for these pets to never see the inside of a shelter again!  Our foster families work closely with staff to ensure the pet receives everything they need until they find their forever home. 

If you are interested in becoming a foster care provider with Will County Humane Society, please call the shelter at (815) 741-0695.
