Job Opportunities

Our Foster Homes are a vital part of our organization.  MHS relies on Foster Homes to provide a safe, secure environment for many of our animals that is significantly less stressful than the shelter.  This is especially important for animals who are dealing with a medical issue and need to recover. This also keeps shelter space free for animals that are available for adoption or for the shelter to take in other animals on an emergency basis.

For animals that will be available for adoption, the foster home’s insight into the animal’s personality traits, special needs, behavioral and health issues as well as how the animal interacts with people and other animals is vital.  This animal information allows us to choose the best home for each pet and provides potential adopters with the opportunity to choose the best pet for their home.

Some animals stay longer than a few months, and we advise that you take this into consideration when deciding if you would like to participate in our foster program.

Monadnock Humane Society will provide all necessary supplies for the pets in foster care.
