Out of an abundance of caution, the intake of dogs at the Lancaster Avenue location is temporarily closed to prevent the possible spread of canine influenza in our shelter. In addition, dog adoptions from the Saxe-Forte (Fort Worth) location are also temporarily closed.

What is fostering?
HSNT Foster Heroes provide temporary care for pets that are not ready to enter our adoption program for a variety of reasons. HSNT typically needs foster homes for underage puppies or kittens, moms with litters of babies, and pets that are injured, sick, or scared. The length of time required for each foster varies; it could be a few days or as much as a few months, but the average foster lasts 2 to 6 weeks.
What does fostering entail?
When you foster an pet for HSNT, you provide them with a safe home setting, love and socialization. HSNT will provide you with the medical care, food and supplies needed to ensure that your foster pet thrives in your home!
