Foster a Pet
Become part of our foster care program and you could make a huge difference for animals that can’t be adopted right away. The Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center often receives animals that are not able to be immediately adopted out because they are too young, need additional socialization, or have other special needs.

Foster care volunteers take these animals into their home, providing a safe environment for them to mature and become more socialized. Some need to be fostered for only a few days, while others may need extended care. Fostering is easy, one just needs to provide TLC – Tender Loving Care…time and love. This can be extremely rewarding and fulfilling as well as a fun and educational activity for the entire family.

Foster care is invaluable to these animals and the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center is urgently seeking animal-loving volunteers to participate in this lifesaving. If you have room in your home and the love in your heart, please consider becoming a foster care volunteer.
