Fostering Love and Care

Providing loving transitions while making room for more.

We don’t ever want to turn an animal away. When our shelter reaches capacity, some of our pets need a temporary place to reside in order to make room for more. Humane Indiana foster families selflessly share their home, in the interim, and provide loving transition until their foster pet is matched with a forever home.

Animals Who Need Your Help


  • Orphaned puppies and kitties that are too young to live in the shelter 
  • Canines and felines in need of socialization 
  • Dogs and cats with medical issues who need a safe, loving environment and extra special care 
  • Special needs pets, from babies to seniors who need loving homes to care for them while they get healthy.

Supplies Provided to Foster Parents to Care for Foster Babies or Shelter Animals

  • Food 
  • Medication 
  • Bedding 
  • Crates 
  • Bottles 
  • Other necessary supplies
