Become a Foster

Welcome a Furry Friend into Your Home!


The Pensacola Humane Society is an organization comprised of passionate advocates that love animals just as much as they love us: unconditionally. We manage a volunteer foster care program to give people in our community a chance to help us achieve our vision of a pet-friendly, no-kill community. Fostering an animal can be a great opportunity, and we are always looking for more foster care volunteers in the Pensacola, FL; Gulf Breeze, FL; and Milton, FL areas.

Why Should You Foster?

  • Nivea

  • Dopey

  • Shamus

  • David Meowie

  • Fostering helps animals heal more quickly and safely than they might in a shelter.
  • Fostering allows us to expand our capacity for care outside of our four walls.
  • Fostering enables our animals to positively thrive, build confidence, and have structure in a home environment.
  • Fostering also allows families to interact and engage with animals on a temporary basis when they are not able to fully commit to adopting one.

Applying to be a Foster Care Volunteer


  • Potential Foster Care Volunteers must fill out the application below. If you are planning on foster both dogs and cats, you may select either application.

  • Our foster team will contact you with our online orientation and information on getting started!

  • When a potential foster pet becomes available, we will post to our foster plea board. As a foster, all placements are voluntary, and you'll be able to choose who you would like to foster from that board.

  • Any questions? Contact us! foster@pensacolahumane.org

  • Want to be involved in our foster program but cannot bring an animal home? Ask our foster team about other foster volunteer opportunities!

After submitting your application, please keep an eye on the email you have provided for a Foster Orientation invite.
