We supply the food, supplies and animal;

Are you interested in becoming a foster for the Fredericksburg SPCA?


Foster care enriches the lives of cats and dogs in our care by offering them a place to grow, recover, socialize, or learn valuable skills that will help them in finding success in a forever home. Whether you are an expert trainer or have never owned a pet before, we have fostering opportunities that will suit your skill level and help improve your knowledge and experience!


Our foster care program is multifaceted and includes:
Neonatal Care
Puppies and Kittens 6-8 weeks old
Shelter breaks for adult dogs and cats
Medical and Fospice Care
Adoption Ambassadors


The Fredericksburg SPCA provides most supplies, food, toys, linens, and crates that you will need for any particular foster. We also provide medical care, a 24-hour emergency line, and general advice and guidance through our active foster community and case managers.


What we need from you:
Be able to provide basic care and feeding
Reliable transportation for events and medical appointments
Adherence to our rules for foster animals
Be an advocate for your foster! Pictures, bios, videos and more are needed to get your foster adopted!
Engagement in our foster community
