Thank you for your interest in the Oregon Humane Society's (OHS) Foster Care Program. We are looking for volunteers who can provide temporary shelter, care and love for potentially adoptable animals. Ultimately, this can increase their chances of survival.
Before you can begin to work as a foster parent, you must first complete a foster volunteer application and attend a two-hour training class. This class will familiarize you with our organization's volunteer policies for all new foster parents and it is conducted on a monthly basis. Once the application is submitted and approved, you will be contacted regarding the next available Foster Care Class dates and will need to complete a background check. Once you complete the Foster Care Class, OHS staff can find the appropriate foster animal for you that will fit your lifestyle.
PLEASE ONLY FILL OUT THIS APPLICATION IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON DOING FOSTER CARE ONLY. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DO FOSTER CARE AND ALSO WORK WITH ANIMALS AT THE SHELTER, YOU WILL NEED TO FILL OUT THE GENERAL VOLUNTEER APPLICATION INSTEAD AND ALSO ATTEND A GENERAL VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION.
