CHA Animal Shelter is a volunteer, nonprofit animal shelter dedicated to finding homes for homeless cats and dogs with responsible individuals. We rely on over 400 volunteers for their talent and generosity of their time to accomplish this goal. Below are some of the areas in which our volunteers provide much-needed help.
CHA Animal Shelter has a foster program that allows our volunteers to house animals with special needs on a temporary basis in their homes. This program allows CHA pets to recover from medical conditions, grow to a healthy and adoptable age, or just get relief from the stress of the shelter in a caring environment. The Foster program is open to all CHA volunteers. If you are unable to volunteer regularly with CHA Animal Shelter but are interested in providing temporary care and shelter to animals in need, you can begin the process to become a foster parent by attending a brief training and orientation.
