Become A Foster Parent


The SCHS is looking for foster homes! Make a difference in a homeless animal's life. Give a homeless animal a "second chance". Become a foster parent and open your home and heart to an animal in need.

This shelter supports a foster to adopt program.
Foster care in your own home benefits:

Ill animals needing recuperation (at times including medication)
Young animals needing socialization
Mother animals and their young
Orphaned animals
Stressed/frightened animals intolerant of a shelter environment

Fostering is a heartwarming, rewarding experience. Learn about respect, consideration, and responsibility for another life. Help your community by caring for some of its homeless animals. A foster home is a vital step for a homeless animal on its way to a permanent, loving home. You can provide that important link. If interested, please visit the shelter and fill out an application to be a foster parent.or visit us at www.myschs.com and fill in an online application.

Our Adoption Process:

Adopt a Friend


We DO NOT ship our animals. You must fill out an adoption application and you will be contacted upon approval.This normally takes 24-48 hours to complete. Interested adopters must visit with a lead caregiver for a meet and greet.

All of our precious pets are spayed or neutered before adoption. Both dogs and cats are up to date with annual vaccinations,dewormed dogs are heartworm tested, cats are tested for FIV and feline leukemia and are treated for ear mites. All dogs are temperament tested by a trained tester. We are on the Science Diet plan so it is what we feed our cats and dogs. Each and every one of our companion animals are provided with an examination by a Veterinarian. We also microchip all of our pets upon adoption. Don't forget you are also able to receive a complimentary visit by your own Veterinarian too.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
