Foster families help save lives.
Fostering at the Houston SPCA means joining a family of caring people who support our lifesaving mission and have a passion for animals—just like you! No experience is necessary, but you need to be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license. We provide you with all the needed supplies including Hill’s Science Diet pet food, litter, crates, toys, bedding as well as medicine, if necessary. All medical treatments and check-ups are conducted by Houston SPCA veterinary staff on our campus, in-person or online per CDC guidelines. Read our Foster Family FAQ.
