Weekend Warrior Program

This program is for those who may not be ready for a permanent commitment or who want to give a shelter pet a much needed break. You can foster for a weekend, a week or a lifetime if you fall in love!

 We give you a report card to fill out on the pet so that we have some much needed information to pair them up for their forever home.

Another great program we have available is the Foster-to-Adopt Pet Program in Lee County.

Thank you for your interest in helping the homeless pets of Lee County.
