Lovey and her 6 kittensThe Ladybird Animal Sanctuary does not yet have a shelter, so we rely on a network of foster homes to house our animals while they await adoption. We are always on the hunt for reliable, responsible individuals and families to be official Ladybird animal fosters. The more foster homes we sign up, the more animal’s lives we can save! Ladybird covers the expense of food, supplies and all veterinary expenses. All that’s needed is your time and commitment. If you would like to apply to become a Ladybird foster, please read our Foster Program Policies and Agreement (click here) and fill out our foster application below. You can help us save the lives of animals in need!

* November 2015 – Please note…we are currently at our limit for volunteer resources and cannot presently accept foster applications for homes who do not have access to a vehicle. Food/supply pick up and vet visits are a large part of our foster program, and we are now at capacity for the volunteer manpower it takes to look after our many existing foster homes. We’ll post here when we are able to open up to all foster homes again. Sorry about any inconvenience. We’re trying our best! *
