Colonial Capital Humane Society
Foster Home Application
Fostering a rescued pet is a huge
responsibility and one that must be accepted by the entire family. In
an effort to find the best possible foster home for each of our pets,
Colonial Capital Humane Society asks that you take the time to complete
this application and discuss any questions you may have with one of our
Rescue/Adoption Committee members. Foster care for a rescued pet can
frequently last as long as six months and occasionally longer. Please
be sure that you are able to make that commitment. You must be over the age of 18 to be considered as a foster home.
