An Emergency Crisis Foster is someone who is willing to temporarily open their home to a pet-owner in need. These are pet-owners who’ve found themselves in very difficult situations, and simply need time to resolve them, and avoid surrendering their beloved pets. There are a variety of reasons in which Emergency Crisis Fosters are needed, including homelessness, domestic abuse, house fires, injured or ill owners, relocation or moving, etc. In any case, these are pet owners who are trying desperately NOT to lose or surrender their pets. Humane Indiana understands not wanting to lose your pet during a traumatic time in life. Since our shelter does not offer boarding at our facility, Emergency Crisis Fosters are our only option for crisis clients, and the best-case scenario for their pets. Emergency Crisis Fostering is typically a 30-day foster commitment. Humane Indiana works within our foster network and we are in constant contact with the legal owner of the fostered pet. Humane Indiana provides any needs for the foster, including food, bowls, vaccines, bedding, collars, and leashes. Potential crisis clients must fill out an application for services either in person or by phone. If it is determined that our program is the best fit, Humane Indiana works to find a foster for the client's pet immediately and will schedule the admission of the pet as soon as possible.
Humane Indiana firmly believes that in the preservation of families which includes pets. Humane Indiana offers medical help in the form of spay/neuter, vaccines, or micro-chipping, and may also provide initial canine and feline behavioral counseling. Humane Indiana can also provide any supplies the pet owner may need to keep the pet, including but not limited to: food, litter, leashes, collars, toys, treats, grooming products, cat furniture, or litter boxes. For Surrender Prevention Services - please call our Intake Department at 219-922-3811 extension 211. The Intake Center is closed on Sundays.
