Foster families are an integral part of HSHA because they provide temporary homes for animals that we may not be able to care for in the shelter environment. Fostering is a very rewarding experience. HSHA provides foster families with all of the education and supplies they need. In turn, foster families provide the love and attention that many foster animals need. Foster families provide temporary homes for animals for a variety of reasons, including:
Foster families should be able to provide an area in their home that is isolated from other pets. Other pets should be up-to-date on all vaccines. HSHA will never ask a foster family to house an animal that may not be a "good match" for that family.

Hi! I'm Hiss Magnolia, a gorgeous 5 year old tortie darling who lost my home because my owners were moving. Don't worry, I don't hiss at all and you'll barely hear a peep (or meow) out of me. My former name was Ms. Peaches, but I like Magnolia, too. The Magnolia flower symbolizes beauty and gentleness, two of my many lovely character qualities. I'm mild-mannered and affectionate, always appreciative of attention and affection. I was sad to lose my home and quite confused and afraid for my first few weeks here. I felt like a withered, drooping flower. I've come a long way, though, and now I come out of my box to be petted and held. I'm eager to love and be loved, so a quiet, calm home would be the best environment for me. I would be a lovely companion if you are on the market for a low-energy cat who just wants to enjoy your company. I may need some time to adjust to my new surroundings, but if you are patient and understanding, I'm sure to be sitting on your lap and rubbing my cheeks on you in no time!
Hi there! I'm Champ, a hunky 3 year old Mastiff/Labrador mix. My family made the difficult decision to surrender me since they could no longer care for me. I would benefit from an experienced family that can further my training and social skills. I am a bigger boy at about 90lbs and very strong! As a result, any kids in my new home should be 12 or older. I need a feline free home, but I like other dogs and played well with the ones I met here. So, if you're looking for a handsome hunk to add to the family, come in and meet me, Champ!
