Emergency Relief Fosters

Become an Emergency Relief Foster

If you are interested in becoming an Emergency Foster please email the foster team at foster@anticruelty.org


Thank you for your interest in helping with our emergency relief efforts! The Anti-Cruelty Society often responds to requests for emergency support and we rely on our fosters to step up during these emergency situations. This is where the Emergency Relief Foster program comes in. 

The Emergency Relief Foster program is an important part of The Anti-Cruelty Society's foster efforts. These specialized foster caretakers are prepared to assist the Society with animals in case of emergencies. These may include local, regional, or national disasters, community health emergencies, or assisting clients utilizing the SAFE (short-term accommodations for emergencies) boarding program.

Emergency relief foster pet parents keep their homes open and available so that when an emergency does occur, the foster team can reach out to them directly and quickly find a home for the displaced animal. 

Once approved for the program, you will be asked to watch our virtual foster orientation and review the Emergency Relief Foster Manual. We will update you when there is need for more fosters.  

For more information, check out these Foster FAQs or email us at foster@anticruelty.org

Thank you for helping us help animals in need!
