Foster Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in our foster care program!

At the Humane Society of Weld County our foster families extend their compassion to provide special care to hundreds of orphaned and neglected animals each year. 
If you are ready to open your heart and home to an animal in need this is the perfect opportunity for you. Fostering will give you new insight on animal behavior and leave you with the knowledge that you have made a tremendous difference in the lives of homeless animals!

  • At this orientation, you will learn about:

    • How the shelter operates​

    • What we do here

    • Details about what you can expect with the foster program


        Our fosters help our shelter animals get adopted through a satisfyingly direct way: caring for animals that          are too young, ill, or poorly socialized to be placed in a forever home just yet. Fostering is also a great way          to increase one’s personal knowledge of animal health and behavior.
