Fostering is Fun
We are always in need of foster homes! A foster parent cares for a
fur-kid until we find a forever home for them. We provide for any medical care and monthly heartworm prevention pills.
All we ask is that fosters bring their dog or cat to at least one Show and Shine a month so they can get their time in the spotlight and get adopted! We currently hold Show & Shine events at two locations each month -- one in Marble Falls and one in Horseshoe Bay.
Fostering is a rewarding experience, especially when that special fur-kid finds their special family. Because you care for the animal personally, you will learn all about its personality and can help play matchmaker at our meet-and-greet type events!
If you are interested in fostering or just have questions about the responsibilities or process, please call us at 512-793-5463 or Click on "About Us -- Applications" to get started.
How Much? The Hill Country Humane Society takes care of initial shots, tests for heartworms and administers medication for an illness that may be apparent at the shelter.
The shelter's overhead and veterinary expenses are continually mounting, and we ask our new adopters for a minimum tax-deductible donation of $125 for all dogs, $75 for all cats, with a 10% discount for veterans and active first responders.
Your donation ensures our ability to continue rescuing more beautiful, deserving animals.
Because unaltered pets are the main reason shelters exist, we offer our adopters a special program for spaying and neutering their newly adopted unaltered pet through certain area veterinarians who work with us.
