Do you love animals? Have extra space in your home and extra time in your schedule? Do you have prior pet care experience? Are you in-between pets or thinking of adopting in the future? A frequent traveler who can’t commit to long term pet ownership? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, then fostering may be for you!

Butte Humane Society foster volunteer orientations will be held this month on May 15th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on May 17th from 10 a.m. to noon. This orientation is required for new foster volunteers. Please visit our website at for details on how to sign up.

During the summer months, Butte Humane Society receives hundreds of young kittens who need to be placed in foster homes in order to receive round-the-clock care. By fostering, you directly help save lives and enable orphaned kittens to become healthy, happy, and adoptable. 

Butte Humane Society is dedicated to giving each animal another chance at a happy, healthy life. In many cases, fostering an animal outside of a kennel atmosphere is necessary for their optimum health and care. Butte Humane Society can provide the necessary supplies and medical treatments, so all you have to do is open your heart and your home to an animal in need.
