Foster with Shelter From The Storm

Being a foster parent is a very rewarding experience.  You take in an animal and provide them with love, socialization, and training until they find their forever home. Foster care allows them to learn how to be part of a family.  It also helps us learn about each animals' needs and get a better picture of their personality.   Fostering saves 2 lives    because it opens up a kennel at the shelter for us to save another animal!  We  need  foster homes for dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. 

SFTS provides  all needed medical care and can provide supplies    such as food, treats, leashes,    harnesses, toys, crates, and dog beds    to fosters if needed.   We do not foster to adopt except in very special and rare circumstances, nor are fosters allowed to adopt their first foster animal.


  • Must be 18 years of age

  • SFTS will verify home ownership or landlord approval

  • All pets in the home must be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, and seen for regular check-ups

  • Foster home must provide transportation to  adoption events and  vet appointments
