Foster Opportunities

Become a Foster Volunteer

Are you able to temporarily care for a pet in need?  Then join our foster volunteer program!  We are looking for caring, dependable individuals that are willing to open their homes and hearts to homeless pets.

Before You Can Volunteer You Must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older 
  • Complete the foster volunteer application and submit it to or drop it off in person at Mont Belvieu Animal Shelter 
  • Consent to a background check screening
  • Live within a 45-mile radius of Mont Belvieu Animal Shelter
  • Be able to provide all appropriate care for a foster animal

If you are already a shelter volunteer, you will still need to submit a foster volunteer application.  However, you will not need to consent to a second background check.

If you have any questions, please call us at 281-576-2417 or email us at

What Impact Does Fostering Have?

Becoming a foster volunteer makes a big difference in the lives of shelter animals!  By fostering, you can:

  • Nurse animals back to health
  • Help animals overcome fear and anxiety
  • Help immature animals grow and thrive
  • Give animals a break from the stressful shelter environment
  • Open up kennel spaces for incoming animals
  • Acclimate animals to living in an indoor home environment

Whatever your reason for fostering may be, you are helping to give animals their best chance at being adopted into a loving forever home!
