Foster Care Program

YHS Foster Volunteers are Lifesavers

The Yavapai Humane Society Foster Care Program provides care for animals not yet ready for adoption. Volunteers care for animals in their own homes, providing animals that are underweight, underage, sick or injured the time they need to grow or heal so they may become adoptable. Foster parents choose the type of animals and length of stay that your lifestyle can accommodate. YHS staff will provide foster volunteers with necessary training and access to medical care (medical care is only available to YHS foster animals).
