Pet Foster Program

Kittens in CageOur partners at the Friends of the Verona Street Animal Shelter (d/b/a Verona Street Animal Society) have a foster program for our animals with special needs or to extend the walls of the shelter during periods of high intake. The purpose of the foster program is to give animals a chance that might not otherwise have one. It may be a litter of unweaned kittens who need round-the-clock attention, an adult cat with an upper respiratory infection, a dog with an injury, or an animal that simply does not do well in a shelter environment.  In some cases foster homes are necessary because the shelter has run out of available cage or kennel space and we need a foster home to serve as a temporary home until a permanent one can be indentified.

Fostering can extend holding periods, increase likelihood of adoption, aid in healing and recovery from injury or illness, reduce shelter crowding and improve socialization between animals and people.  Additionally, fostering a special needs animal is a wonderfully rewarding way to assist Animal Services with the many challenges the organization faces on a daily basis. 

If you are interested in learning more about the Verona Street Animal Society's (VSAS) foster program or becoming a foster home, email or visit VSAS for more information.

Also, contact or visit our transfer partners to learn about other animals in foster care awaiting forever homes.
