Be a Foster Parent
Short term commitment, long term effect
Some of the animals at CAS are in need of a foster family who can take care of them until they are ready to be put up for adoption to find a permanent home. By finding these animals foster homes we can ensure they are in a healthy environment, that they will have one on one care and attention and it gives us more space and time at the shelter for animals ready to be adopted. Generally, this time period lasts anywhere from a week to a few months depending on the need.
We have kittens and puppies that are still too young to be put up for adoption that need a little more time to grow. Some dogs and cats of various ages who need to be more socialized by a patient, loving foster family before being put up for adoption. And we also have dogs and cats that may need some soothing, attention and love in order to regain their good health. In some scenarios it's required that the foster parents to administer any necessary medications and provide transport for possible vet appointments, etc.

Become an Adoption Ambassador!
Be a part of this amazing foster program!
What is the Adoption Ambassador Program?!
This a new foster program where we place dogs and puppies that are up for adoption into your home. We will provide training on the adoption process and send you home with an adopt me vest, business cards for the dog, all supplies needed (crate, food, leash, etc.), and a gold pass to the county parks. We will also help you advertise your dog on our facebook page and website. We will even invite you to join us at our adoption events! You will simply take the dog out into the community with an adopt me vest and try to find the perfect family for your pooch! Dogs and puppies are typically adopted within 0-4 weeks.....It's easy and fun!
Benefits of the Program
By becoming an Adoption Ambassador you will make kennel space available in the shelter for new animals that are entering the sheltering system. You will also be able to talk to the potential adopter more about the dog's behaviors, habits, and traits providing them with information that we wouldn't be able too. This results in lower returns at the shelter! Studies have also found that we are capturing new adopters, some that have never even visited an animal shelter before or previously purchased from a breeder! It's also a great way to recruit more fosters and promote the Charleston Animal Society. You can even get your kids involved and teach them a life lesson.
