In-Home Heroes Animal Foster Program

Experience first-hand how you can make an immediate and lasting impact on the life of an animal that needs you help.

In-Home Heroes is the Michigan Humane Society’s short-term, in-home care program which saves lives by helping animals who need a little extra time and TLC prior to adoption. 

Animals may be placed in foster homes for a variety of reasons: illness, injury, they are too young for adoption, etc. 

We supply the resources – you supply the love!

Better by Design

Often referred to as animal fostering, MHS’ progressive program is designed with a convenient, short-term, structured focus, providing the maximum value to the animals – and their temporary caretakers.

The In-Home Heroes program will provide you with the resources and support needed through every foster experience. 

    • Short-term
    • Food and supplies provided
    • Help animals in your home, as your schedule allows
    • Program includes training and support
    • You choose which animals you can help

Fostering may be for you if you can answer Yes to two or more of the following questions:

    • 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 a “snowbird” who can only have pets a few months out of the year?
    • A frequent traveler who can’t commit to long term pet ownership?
