Foster Guidelines

Thank you for considering fostering an animal from our shelter. In order to foster an animal, you simply follow these 3 easy steps!

1) Submit an online application or a printable application. Be sure to contact the shelter to check the status of your application by calling 330-262-0152 or stopping at our facility located at 1161 Mechanicsburg Road, Wooster, Ohio.

2) Potential foster families are screened. WCHS staff will contact you and conduct a home visit to make sure the household is pet-ready, with suggestions provided. We also make a call to the veterinarian of any current pets in the household. Once a family is approved and trained, they can be called whenever there are animals ready to be cared for.

3) Make arrangements to pick up the pet(s) from the shelter following the foster approval.
