ATTENTION!!! The Hanna SPCA is always in need of foster homes for dogs & cats. We can provide food, litter (and even litter boxes) and any other need to help you care for these animals. Please call the SPCA (403) 854-3700 or come in person to 321 - 3rd Ave E.
What Do Foster Homes Do?
Foster homes provide temporary care and shelter until the animal(s) are adopted. Foster homes are asked to provide animals with plenty of love, adequate food/water, shelter, and exercise. In addition foster homes may also be asked to transport animals to veterinary appointments and adoption events. Depending on individual situations, foster homes will be reimbursed for supplies, such as food, litter and toys and for any veterinary costs incurred in the care of the animal.
What Are The Requirements For Becoming A Foster Home?
The only requirements are that a person love animals, have the time and resources to provide a foster animal with adequate care and socialization. Other requirements will vary depending upon the specific needs of a given foster animal. Some animals, for example, will need fenced yards, extra time commitments (as is the case with orphaned newborns), isolation from personal pets, etc. Perspective Foster Homes are required to fill out a Foster Care Application and a Foster Home Agreement.
How Long Do Animals Spend In Foster Care?
The time an animal needs to spend in foster care ranges anywhere from one night to several months. Any time commitment a foster home can make is desperately needed and appreciated.
How Do Foster Animals Find Permanent Adoptive Homes?
The Hanna SPCA takes full responsibility for finding permanent adoptive homes for foster animals. Foster homes are encouraged to let people know that their foster animals are available for adoption, but any person interested in adopting an animal needs to contact the Hanna SPCA to complete the adoption application procedure.
