While we do everything we can to make an animal’s stay with us as comfortable as possible, nothing can compare to a loving home environment. Sometimes an animal needs extra recovery time, socialization, or a break from the shelter. When you foster a dog, cat, or small animal with the Cochrane & Area Humane Society, you’ll be giving a second chance to an animal in need while allowing us more space to save another animal who needs our help.
Below are just a few benefits of fostering with the CAHS.
The CAHS covers the expenses of fostering a shelter animal so you can focus on showering your new furry friend with love.
