  • Foster a Pet through Pima Animal Care

    **Sign up to foster HERE! **

    Once you submit your application, the foster team will review it within 24 - 48 hours and send you a confirmation email with next steps! In the meantime, you can learn about some of our existing foster programs below!

    Kittens and Puppies

    Kitten and puppy season is right around the corner and we need your help! If you would like to foster puppies or kittens, learn how here

    Traditional Cat and Dog Fostering:

    Our biggest foster need right now is for medium to large dogs many of which are strays and have unknown histories.  We also need fosters for adult cats who may just need extra socialization or a comfy place to relax before they get adopted. If you would like to foster medium or large adult dogs, learn how here!

    Pets with Medical Needs

    We often have pets waiting for or recovering from surgery, needing ongoing medical treatments or battling illnesses. These cats and dogs usually just need somewhere quiet to recover.  

    Looking to adopt a pet in foster care? 

    Email PACC.adoptafoster@pima.gov Please include the pet's name and A-number. (NOTE: If you don't hear back in a couple of days, please stop by the shelter.)

    Big THANK YOU to the organizations who help make our foster program possible!
