Want to open your home to an animal in need? Though Chicago Animal Care and Control does not have a foster program, we can put you in contact with a local organization that does. The organizations we work with provide a vital network which enables us to expand our ability to car for the animals beyond our facility. If you are willing to temporarily provide shelter and a safe environment to an animal in need, please click on the following links:
To foster through Friends of Chicago Animal Care & Control (Dogs and Cats)
To foster through PAWS Chicago (Dogs and Cats)
To foster though Treehouse Humane Society (Cats only)
