Foster Application
Congratulations on your decision to foster an animal companion. South Wood County Humane Society is happy you are considering an animal from our shelter. The goal of South Wood County Humane Society is to find permanent, loving and responsible homes for the animals in our care. We do not adopt on a first come served basis, do not hold animals for adoption and our goal is to match the best animal for your situation. South Wood County Humane Society’s Foster Home Program is designed to offer housing for animals in need on a temporary basis. Please complete the information below to help us place the correct animal(s) in your home.

In order to be considered for the foster program, you must:

  • Be 21 years of age or have a co-signer present at time of turning in application and adoption if approved.
  • Have formal identification (ex. Drivers License)
  • Current pets must be up to date on vaccinations.
  • SWCHS will check with landlords for approval of pets in rental homes, apartments and mobile home parks. Parental permission must be granted if you live in their home at time of application.

I authorize any and all verifications of statements made in the application. I recognize that any misrepresentation of facts may result in losing the privilege of adopting a pet.

I understand I am responsible for the cost of basic care which includes food, housing and quality of life needs while fostering this animal.

I also understand SWCHS has the right to do a follow up visit and take pictures showing proper shelter is being provided for any animal kept outside. If this animal becomes ill, injured, or lost, I will contact the SWCHS immediately.

I also sign that I understand how the foster process works, agree to complete any spay/neuter requirements and pay fees involved with adoption if required.
