Foster Opportunities

KITTENS: Fostering nursing moms and babies OR kittens too young for adoption.

  • In this program, foster parents care for pets until they are big enough to return to the shelter and go onto the adoption floor. The majority of these pets are small kittens or moms with nursing kittens. Please go here to learn more about fostering kittens and to sign up for the program.

DOG FOSTER PROGRAM

  • Foster a dog from OCAS! Fostering reduces stress and anxiety for dogs, and also helps dogs learn social skills. Click here for more information.

NOT READY TO BE A FOSTER PARENT JUST YET? DOG DAY OUT PROGRAM COMING SOON!

  • Field trips are a great way to help dogs engage with the community, reduce kennel stress, and learn social skills. Field trips are helpful in marketing dogs for adoption, as potential adopters want to know more about a dog outside of their shelter kennel. Field trips are fun, but field trips with dogs are better! Whether it’s a trip to Starbucks for a pup cup, a hike, or a quiet nap on your couch – our dogs love to go on adventures with humans! Click here for more information.
