Chaffee County's Nonprofit Event Hub
Partner with us to help pets that need socialization, a safe place to heal, or time to grow outside of the shelter.
Foster care is temporary care and shelter for one of our animals to give them a break from the kennel environment. Foster Volunteers provide essential help. To apply to become a foster volunteer, please follow these steps:
*If you would like to also volunteer your time here at the shelter, please fill out the general volunteer application instead, found here.
We are looking for volunteers 18 years and older to care for these pets. . While you are fostering the animal, Ark-Valley Humane Society provides food, any necessary medications, crate, a collar and leash (for dogs), a pet carrier (for cats) and training for the volunteer. As a foster parent, all you need to provide is love in a safe and clean home where the animal can thrive and flourish!
