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 your help

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

Animals may be placed in foster homes for a variety of reasons such as illness, injury or because they simply are too young for adoption. 

Better by Design
The MHS foster program is designed with a convenient, short-term, structured focus, providing the maximum value to the animals - and their temporary caregivers. MHS provides the food, supplies and medical care, as well as the support needed through every foster experience.

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?

Are you interested in opening your home and heart and making a lifesaving difference?  Sign up to Foster today!
