BECOME A FOSTER PARENT
Thank you very much for your interest in fostering for MCPAWS Regional Animal Shelter! Fostering is an integral component of animal welfare, allowing us to provide extra care and love to animals who literally might not otherwise survive. We need dedicated individuals, like you, to help us in this very special endeavor. No doubt about it, fostering saves lives and we couldn’t do it without you!

FOSTER CARE PROGRAM OBJECTIVES
- Train compassionate individuals to provide specialized care of at-risk shelter animals such as neonatal kittens and young puppies.
- Encourage the recovery and care of sick or injured animals.
- Provide a much needed break from the kennel and additional training/socialization for shelter dogs and cats.
- Ultimately place well-adjusted, healthy pets with adoptive families.
MCPAWS will provide necessary training and cover all veterinary costs, food, bedding, and any other needs while the animal is in foster care.
If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please contact our Shelter Manager, Christa, for more information. 208 634-DOGS.
Are you willing to provide end-of-life care and comfort to senior and/or sick animals who are not suffering? We are looking for compassionate volunteers who are willing to provide shelter, warmth, and love to animals who are near the end of their journey.
MCPAWS will cover all medical expenses while the animal is in hospice care. This program is rarely needed, but important. We hate to see senior animals sit in kennels, when they could be curled up on a couch or next to a fire. Please contact us if you think you are interested in this most special of opportunities.
Tuesday - Saturday: 11:30am to 6pm
Sunday: 1:00pm to 6:00pm
By appointment only.
Please call (208) 634-3647 to schedule an appointment!
