Foster Care

Foster homes are a crucial part of our Animal Care plan, especially if the Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is full. Animals that, for any reason, do not thrive in a shelter setting need special people to give them extra love and attention – and then help send them off to forever homes.

If you are one of those special people, please call 970.235.1013.

For your safety and well-being as well as the pet’s, we will schedule a home visit by one of our team leaders before you begin fostering a pet for the first time. Together you will complete an evaluation (required by the State) and agreement.

GVAWL can provide food and supplies while a pet is in your home.
