Devenir une famille d'accueil - SPA Estrie - La Société protectrice des animaux de l’Estrie - Organisme de charité soucieux du bien-être des animaux

A great way TO HELP the animals!

Being a foster family for the Eastern Townships SPA means welcoming an animal into your home, on a temporary basis. These animals need a little time before being placed up for adoption.

For all these animals, the comfort of a home is the ideal environment to get through this waiting period.

WHY become a foster family?

  • To allow an animal to stay in a calm, family environment while undergoing treatment.
  • To provide a calm and better adapted environment for an animal needing to be socialized.
  • To free up space at the shelter when we are crowded.
  • To take an active part in the mission of your SPA.

What are the CRITERIA to become a foster family?

  • Have time to dedicate to your foster animal as if he or she were your own pet!
  • If you already have pets at home, they must all be spayed or neutered and have their vaccinations up to date.
  • Be available to come to the shelter for a follow-up appointment.
  • Have at your disposal a room that can be used for isolation in some cases.
  • Be patient and compassionate with your foster animal.

Please note that :

  • Other criteria may apply depending on the animal(s) looking for a foster family. Our staff will inform you of all the details.
  • Your SPA will provide you with everything you need to ensure the animal’s well-being ( litter, food, medication, etc.).

For the moment, we have enough Foster Families to meet our needs. If you wish, it is still possible to fill out the form below to apply. We will contact you if a place becomes available. We look forward to welcoming you as one of our Foster Families!
