Since the Humane Society of Logan County Shelter has been in operation the number of foster families has dwindled to almost none. Granted, most of the animals can be taken directly to the shelter and kept there until they are adopted. But, there are exceptions. Consequently, foster families are still very, very important.

HSLC needs foster families for:

  • Cats with feline leukemia
  • Cats that are too stressed to reside in a shelter
  • Cats in danger of being euthanized
  • Cats who need a break from living with several other cats
  • Cats needing extra socialization

HSLC needs foster families for:

  • Dogs who are living at animal control
  • Dogs with special needs such as an injury, epilepsy, diabetes, etc.
  • Dogs who need a break from living in a kennel
  • Dogs needing extra socialization
  • Dogs who need training.

Please consider becoming a foster home. With the shelter in place, a foster home might be a short term placement for an animal, but it is invaluable. Call the shelter at 217-737-4042 to learn more about fostering. HSLC needs you!
