Calling All Volunteers for Humane Society Short-Term Pet Foster Program!


The Human Society for Greater Nashua (HSFN) is seeking volunteer short-term foster homes in the Greater Nashua area for pets in need!  

The short-term foster program, which is a part of HSFN’s Safety Net Program, has been running for about a year and is slowly growing their network of foster families. The foster program allows volunteers to provide a home for pets whose owners need temporary respite for up to one month. Short-term fostering is available in the following situations:

  • Families and individuals who have been evicted
  • Individuals who are hospitalized or entering a rehabilitation program
  • Individuals in transitional housing/shelter or who are experiencing domestic abuse
  • Recent immigrants, disabled individuals, and veterans

If you’re interested in volunteering your time and home to care for a dog or cat, please email All interested individuals will go through an application process that includes an interview and home visit to ensure everyone in the household – human and animal alike – will be comfortable hosting a foster animal.

Please note that anyone approved by HSFN to foster will be providing this service as a community-based volunteer, and not as part of their employment at SNHH.
