Looking for a way to get involved, but don’t have the time or space to foster an animal? We have a perfect solution…Become a Virtual Foster!

What is a virtual foster? A virtual foster is a volunteer that selects and adult animal (cat or dog) to promote. Virtual fosters come by the shelter at least once a week during business hours and spend a little time getting to know the animal of their choosing. Virtual fosters can spend time with their “foster” on a walk, in the meet and greet room, or on a doggy date. We ask that you write a cute bio for your foster to help them get adopted. We also ask that virtual fosters take a couple of cute pictures and/or videos of their furry new friend to share with the world. If potential adopters have questions about your virtual foster we will forward inquiries to you via email.

**Participants must be 18yrs or older with valid photo I.D.**

Video Tips:

  • Film in Landscape (horizontal) instead of vertical to avoid black bars in the shot.

  • Make it fun! Capture your virtual foster playing or being downright adorable. Keep it happy and upbeat to connect with more viewers.

  • Play! Play with different camera settings or editing apps. Slow motion treat catch videos can be quite entertaining.

  • Short and Sweet. Keep videos under 1 min. 10-45 seconds is perfect for getting views!

  • Apps. There are tons of apps out there, but we love “Quick” app by GoPro. (It’s Free!
