Animal Shelter Foster Family


Project Description:

Foster, give a vulnerable animal a second chance at life:

With expert support, veterinary resources and free food, fosters provide loving, temporary homes for Gwinnett Animal Welfare’s most vulnerable residents.

This often includes pet who are:

Recovering from illness or injury

Pregnant, nursing, newborn or bottle-fed

Struggling to trust people

Displaced by natural disasters

Volunteer to bring an animal from the shelter into your home to take care of until it can be adopted.  Animals that are fostered are typically too small to be adopted, have a medical condition that needs additional attention, or needs to be socialized. 

All Fosters need to be at least 18-years of age and have approved background check and liability waivers on file prior to being able to Foster. 

All Gwinnett County volunteers are required to agree and complete the waiver/release and consent forms before participating in any volunteer project or event. Please download, print, and fill out the required consent form. E-mail your completed waiver/release and consent form to the Event Organizer for approval.

This volunteer opportunity is not eligible for court-ordered community service hours.
