The Foster Care Program is key at Monadnock Humane Society. Animals enter foster care for a variety of reasons including short-term medical or behavioral issues, nursing mothers and newborns, orphaned juveniles, and post-surgical recuperation.


What Do I Need?

Monadnock Humane Society provides the necessary supplies needed to care for your foster care animal(s). Additionally, MHS provides all medical care while the animal is in his/her foster home.

Plan to set up a separate room in your home for your new foster animal(s) to keep them apart from your current pets. This keeps your animals safe as well as ensuring the safety of the newly-introduced foster animals.


Where Do I start?

We are currently updating our foster care program in order to continue to provide the best care for the animals in our shelter and in our community. Please stay tuned for more information on how to get started.


And In the End…

Successful foster homes offer love while holding the vision that this animal is destined for someone else’s home. When the foster care animal(s) is ready to be adopted, they are returned to the Monadnock Humane Society. Potential adopters will meet with our staff to see if the animal is a good fit for their home. All adoptions are finalized at MHS.
