Foster Animals

We love our fosters! Fostering an animal for the Humane Society of Richland County is a great way to help the organization and animals in need.

We ask for fosters for pregnant/nursing animals, animals that are under 8 weeks old, and animals recovering from surgery. We will provide initial supplies and any medical treatment if needed.

Interested in fostering? Keep an eye on our Face Book Page! When we get an animal in need of a foster home, we will post on there asking for help. A Foster Application will need to be filled out and approved before the animal can leave the shelter. Feel free to contact the shelter with any questions!



We are grateful for volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering at the shelter, click the button below to fill out the application online. Once it has been submitted, please call the shelter at 419-774-4795 to schedule a time to volunteer.

Volunteers must be 18 years or older. We greatly appreciate anyone willing to volunteer and we hope to see you soon!
