Foster families provide hundreds of shelter animals the extra attention and time in a home that they need to be ready for adoption.

Animal Needs & Matching

The staff at the Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center try to match the needs of the foster home with the needs of the animal(s). Once the animal has completed their time in the foster home, they return to the Adoption Center for placement into a new home. Foster care is a rewarding and educational experience.

What Our Foster Homes are Saying

"My family has been fostering for NACC for a little over a year now and it has been an eye-opening and wonderful journey that has brought us closer together. There's a real sense of family pride when an animal we've nurtured finds a good home. My boys look forward to each new litter like it's Christmas!"

"It's more personal, therefore, more rewarding to see an animal that I've care for and raised go on to be adopted."

"It is so incredibly rewarding for my children to learn about animal needs, care, and compassion for all living things. Fostering is so beneficial for the whole family!"

"It's an incredible feeling to know that I've personally made a huge difference in each of those animals' lives."
