Thank you for considering becoming a foster parent at PAHS!​

Our foster families help make PAHS work by preventing shelter overcrowding and giving a second chance to animals who may need extra love. The shelter is always looking for new foster families to help us help more animals in Prattville/Autauga County. If you’re interested in more information, email us at or give us a call at 334-358-2882.​

Why foster?

Fostering will be a fun and rewarding experience for families who may not be ready to take on the long term-commitment of adoption. You’ll be giving a second chance to an animal in need and helping them grow in and thrive in a way they they never could inside of the shelter.


What do foster parents do?

Foster parents provide a safe and loving environment for animals in need for a few weeks up to a few months. You ensure your foster pet gets food, shelter, compassion, and any special attention they may need. You also provide transportation to and from the shelter and any adoption events.


Why are animals placed into foster care?

Animals in need of foster care include:

  • Puppies and kittens that are too young to be adopted

  • Moms nursing litters of puppies or kittens

  • Dogs undergoing heartworm treatment

  • Dogs or cats recovering from surgery or other medical conditions

  • Animals in need of socialization
