Richmond SPCA foster care volunteers provide temporary care for kittens, puppies, dogs and cats. Some animals may only need a home for several days, while others may need several months of care. We are always looking for foster families to help save more animal lives.

By offering your time, energy, and home to an animal in need, you prepare that animal for adoption into a permanent home as well as increase our capacity to shelter and care for orphaned animals beyond the walls of our Robins-Starr Humane Center. Increased capacity means that more orphaned animals in our community are being shepherded into permanent, loving homes. In short, foster care saves lives.

Meet the Fosters™ at the Richmond SPCA, generously sponsored by Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Center, equips volunteers with the skills, supplies, and access to around-the-clock veterinary care needed to successfully and safely care for foster pets. 

Ready to become a foster care volunteer?
