Welcome to the program!
We appreciate your time, dedication, and efforts to this need. This page contains important information that will help you have a positive experience. It will provide some tips on what to do in various situations. The foster care program brings caring individuals and needy animals together. They provide special care in a home setting until the animals are ready for adoption.

The approval for any animal to be fostered must first be obtained by the foster coordinator or executive director.
AFV makes all medical/surgical decisions about foster animals. AFV provides a contact for medical emergencies. Volunteers will not be reimbursed if they take an animal to another veterinarian for exam, diagnostic testing, and treatment. AFV has a tech on site for foster pets and can determine the course of action benefiting the animal.
The foster coordinator will contact you to schedule spay/neuter appointments, vaccination scheduling, and where to bring your pet for an adoption show. The foster coordinator is your contact and will help answer any of your questions.
AFV will provide your foster pet with any needed vaccinations, medications, food, supplies and toys.
Contact the foster coordinator, and arrangements to visit the vet tech, or a need to replenish pet supplies from the shelter, will be managed for you.
If you think your foster is getting a cold, or is not feeling well, call the foster coordinator. We will have you visit our shelter vet tech for help and any “get well medicine” that might be needed.
