Foster a Dog or Cat
You can foster for any amount of time!
2 days: Be a weekend foster and give a shelter animal a break from the stress of shelter life.
2 Weeks: Many times animals designated to go to a rescue group must be quarantined for 10 days before they can cross state lines to go to their rescues.
1 Month: Often when a rescue steps up to take one of our animals we must provide a foster home here in SC while they make room in their community to receive them. This could be 2-4 weeks.
3 Months: If we are able to treat a dog for heartworms, they must be inside a foster home. Heartworm treatment can be painful and the dog should be in a climate-controlled, non-stressful environment. Heartworms are not contagious to your other pets. Treatment is about 60-90 days.
Animals are up to date on all their shots before they go to foster homes. We make sure they are not contagious in any way so as not to be a threat to your own animals. We can provide you with a 10 X 10 X 6 Kennel and dog house if you choose to foster and want to keep your foster separate from your pets. If you are interested in fostering or have more questions, please fill out a Foster Questionnaire and a Humane Society representative will contact you as soon as possible.
We move animals all the time to rescue groups and boarding facilities across the state and across the nation. We also need help driving our animals to the vet’s office in Blenheim, SC during the week. If you are interested in helping transport, please fill out the volunteer form below and a Humane Society representative will contact you as soon as they can. Most of the time these transports are early AM Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and our part of the transport is about 1-2 hours.
Volunteer Professional Services
We will always have needs at our current facility. Also, we are working toward building a brand new building in the future. If you would like to donate your professional services, please fill out the form below and let us know in the comments section your area of expertise. Thank you!
Last but not least, please continue to share and network these animals to help them find rescues and loving families.
