Foster Requirements

If you are interested in fostering with the Brevard Humane Society, please follow these steps:

  1. Be of age. The primary caregiver of the foster animal must be at least 18 years old. However, young people can help at home and potentially receive school credit. Inquire more about school credit at the volunteer orientation.
  2. Be in the area. Foster volunteers must be able to travel to our location located at 1020 Cox Road in Cocoa on a regular basis. Please consider the potential commute before applying to volunteer.
  3. Fill out a foster application and attend volunteer orientation. Within 3 months of submitting your application you must attend Volunteer Orientation.  Here you will learn about all volunteer positions available at the Brevard Humane Society, our history and policies. During orientation, you will also be shown how to register any other areas that interest you.
  4. Start saving lives. We will match you with the foster animals that suit your lifestyle.
