Foster an Animal

Fostering has many rewards, not the least of which is getting to know the animals' personalities and watching them evolve into confident, loved, and well-adjusted beings. The knowledge we gain from having foster animals in our homes allows us to share much insight with perspective adopters. It all makes for a happy ending and "forever home."

Help CDHA Save More Animals by Fostering! The Capital District Human Association (CDHA) does not have a shelter.We rely solely on our foster home network to provide a safe and stable temporary home to get companion animals ready for adoption.

It’s very simple, the more people who open their homes for fostering the more dogs and cats we can save.  It’s a rewarding way to give to our organization, and it is a critical part of what we do. Most importantly, it is fun!
