Please fill out this application when you are ready.

Why foster an animal?
HIARC does not have a shelter or physical location. All the animals are placed in foster homes until they find a home of their own. Aside from providing a safe, loving and comfortable temporary home until an adoptive home can be found, foster homes live with the animal and therefore know the animal’s personality. This knowledge is vital in determining the most suitable placement for rescued animals, thereby ensure a successful adoption.

What do I have to provide as a foster?
HIARC provides food, bedding, toys etc. and covers all medical expenses (vaccination, spaying/neutering) and if more extensive care is needed, HIARC cover that as well. We ask that fosters provide love, a safe environment, rules and boundaries, and some basic training (and housetraining if needed). We also ask (if possible) that the foster transport the animal to their vet appointments if any.

How long do animals stay in foster care?
It all depend. Sometimes, an animal is adopted within a week or two of being in foster care, and other times, it can take several months to find the best home. It’s not usually possible to predict exactly how long an animal will be in foster care, but lots of photos/videos and an accurate description of the animal go a long way to finding them a good home.
