Learn more about how to become a foster
Have you thought about fostering or volunteering for Bond County Humane Society? Find out how you can help cats and dogs in need!
If we had more foster homes, we could rescue more animals than what we do. We have to rely on the size of our shelter and once that’s full, we’re full.
Cats and Dogs that come from a foster home are more easily adopted. Sheltered animals do get a lot of personal attention and we do focus on learning our felines’ personalities and play habits and training our dogs and puppies with good manners.
But of course, living in a foster home amplifies that personal attention and acclimates the pet to typical family home life.
Anyone who is interested in fostering an animal wouldn’t have to worry about taking in a pet that has just been rescued and hasn’t yet received medical care or treatment for fleas.
They could take an animal that’s been in the shelter, has been through the whole intake protocol, and is simply waiting for adoption. They could take them in and that would open up a space to bring in more of the animals in need.
Call or email the BCHS office at 618-664-4068 or email@example.com to find out how your home and family can help!!
Plus, find our Fostering Application here!
Most of all, our animals wish for a forever home, but, in the meantime, they can really use items donated from our wish list to keep them healthy and clean! What do we need the most right now?
Litter (Tidy Cats scoop-able clumping)
Litter Boxes (covered!)
Purina Pro Plan or Purina One Puppy and Dog food (Chicken & Rice)
Laundry Detergent (liquid high efficiency only)
Bleach (MUST BE STATED “6% sodium hypochlorite”)
YOU CAN HOST A DONATION DRIVE
Some of our supporters enjoy engaging their own networks and planning events to collect supplies for us. Learning to give back is a valuable lesson for kids to learn early.
Many of our young supporters have decided to use their own birthday celebrations as a way to give back to the community through donation drives. Our older supporters have hosted office party or school donation drives.
If you have something you would like to donate please contact us at 618-664-4068 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember... you can write off your donations as a charitable donation! Thank you from the volunteers, staff, and the pets!

BCHS found furever homes for 82 cats/kittens, and 58 dogs/puppies.
April 17, 2019 WGEL FM Daily News reports
