Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Multnomah County Animal Services.
MCAS requires that volunteers license their cats and dogs according to county ordinance and that the primary caregiver for the foster animal is over the age of 18.
Please complete this form if you are interested in fostering dogs, cats, kittens, rabbits, birds, rodents, or farm animals. Foster volunteers take animals in to their homes to provide a temporary, loving, caring, healthy, and safe environment for shelter animals.
The MCAS Foster Pet Program provides temporary care for adoptable animals with special needs that cannot be easily met at the shelter. Foster homes also serve as a way to learn more information about animals before determining their adoptability. Most animals that need to be fostered have additional medical or behavioral challenges. This could be an adult cat or dog recovering from a medical procedure, an animal that is being treated for an illness, has a terminal illness, or is in need of behavior modification. Neonate kittens that need to be bottle fed, moms and kittens, and other specialties are also included.
Once you complete this form you will receive an email with a link to a foster survey, training video, and quiz. Please be sure that your pets are licensed according to County ordinance prior to completing the next step.
*The number of animals needing to be fostered fluctuates.
