Volunteer Foster Parents provide temporary in home care for animals that are not quite ready to find their forever homes, as well as providing palliative care for animals requiring a quiet, comfortable home for the remainder of their life.
As a volunteer foster parent you will provide a temporary home to an animal in need. The Toronto Humane Society provides Foster Parents with food, supplies, medications and veterinary care.
The first step to becoming a Toronto Humane Society Foster Parent is to attend an orientation session. During the session you will learn more about the Toronto Humane Society and the role of volunteer foster parents.
Information about upcoming mandatory Foster Orientation Sessions will be posted below, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter sites. Sessions occur approximately every 6 weeks, so please check back regularly.
Once you have attended a foster orientation session you may submit an application to become a Toronto Humane Society Foster Parent. The application helps us learn about your family, household and your experience.
A member of our foster staff will contact you directly for an interview date and time. During the interview we will discuss your application and answer questions or concerns you may have.
Foster parents are provided with informational manuals and hands-on training.
