Dog Foster Program

COVID-19 Update: Due to the amazing response we’ve had from people interested in fostering during the Shelter in Place Order, we are no longer in need of fosters. If you have alreadysubmitted an application, a team member will be in contact with you if we need additional fosters.

Can you open your heart and your home to a shelter dog? Getting them out of the overstimulating shelter environment can make a huge difference in a dog’s stress levels. It’s also a great way for them to get some much needed mental and physical exercise while having a great time with new people. There’s no pressure to find an adopter or adopt the dog yourself, but we do hope that by inviting a dog in to your home, you can provide information about the dog’s preferences and maybe some great photos to help promote them for adoption.

Most dogs labeled “Available” are candidates for the foster program, though health and behavior will ultimately determine a dog’s eligibility. All dogs going to foster homes will already be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Currently, dogs that are labeled as "Transfer Preferred" due to medical or behavior reasons, are not candidates for this program.

To join the Dog Foster Program:

1. Register to become a CCAS Dog Foster! This survey will tell us how we can match you with a dog that will fit your present lifestyle.

A member of our team will be in touch with you to discuss and identify appropriate matches. You will be asked to come in to meet them and we will hopefully send you home with your new foster dog and the necessary equipment.


Dogs of all sizes and ages are considered for the foster program. If you have a specific dog in mind, be sure to mention that when you register!
