Compassion Foster

We love helping pet owners keep their pets in times of need.
Let’s see if we can help.

In the event that you may need a pet fostered, Humane Fort Wayne has a foster program called Compassion Fostering. This program will foster your pet for 30 days with the option to request another 30 days.

To qualify, you must have one of the situations below:

  • Have lost your home due to no fault of your own.
  • Need medical attention and have no other family to help.
  • Be currently going through a domestic battery situation.

Please be aware that this program has limited space and it may take a few days to get your pet in. Also note, that you may be required to provide proof of your situation. Just fill out the Compassion Foster questionnaire and someone from our team will get back to you if you qualify.

Meet Maggie

Maggie’s mom needed medical care. We fostered her for one month and Maggie was reunited with her mom.

Gorgeous boy George

His family lost their home due to no fault of their own. George’s family was able to secure housing and just shy of 2 months they were reunited with George in their new home.

Say Hello to GusGus

His owner needed emergency medical treatment in November. We were able to take GusGus into our Compassion Fostering program. He was reunited with his mom just in time for Christmas.
