Foster an Animal

Thank you for your interest in becoming a SOLAS foster parent volunteer. Foster parents provide temporary care for cats and kittens in their own Omaha/Council Bluffs area homes. Some animals need as little as two weeks of care, while others may need care for a longer term.

Our greatest foster needs are:

Fostering is flexible enough for most lifestyles and SOLAS will custom-match the animals to each foster home. By offering your time, energy and home to an animal in need, you prepare the animal for adoption into a permanent home as well as help prevent overcrowding in the Midlands Humane Society shelter. SOLAS is always looking for more foster homes, especially throughout the busy spring and summer seasons.

Most common reasons animals require foster care:

SOLAS provides: all veterinary care and medicine for foster animals, pet supplies, such as cat litter and food, plus plenty of support to foster parent volunteers.  
Foster parent volunteers provide: time and a place in their home and lots of love.

How foster care works

Get started

If you are interested in volunteering with SOLAS, please follow these steps:
    1. Be of age. The primary caregiver of the foster animal must be at least 18 years old. However, young people can help at home.
    2. Check out the requirements document below. These are very simple requirements that we look for in foster families.
    3. Attend foster meeting. You will learn about program expectations, basic medical information, and have all your questions answered.  Check out the event page for future meetings.
    4. Start saving lives. SOLAS will match you with the foster animals that suit your lifestyle.
Please note that SOLAS cannot accommodate those seeking to fulfill court-ordered community service. SEND US AN EMAIL!
