Foster An Animal
The greatest need for foster animal care is orphaned kittens, from newborn to a few weeks of age, and pregnant cats and new mothers with kittens. Occasionally we have a dog that needs special care and a foster home is ideal. Foster homes must be licensed by the State of Illinois; Happy Tails arranges and pays for licensing.
