Foster pets from the Aurora Animal Shelter

The Aurora Animal Shelter is urgently seeking foster families to open their homes and hearts to various animals, including large dogs that need space to stretch their paws, shy cats seeking comfort outside of a kennel environment, and underage kittens who require bottle-feeding or medication.


Foster parents must be at least 18 years old or have a guardian co-signer; pass a background check; own home or have approval from the landlord; participate in training for neonatal and feral kittens (if applicable); submit to an annual home inspection by shelter staff; and have an isolated room in the home. The shelter provides all required supplies and training.


If you're interested in fostering, learn more at AuroraGov.org/Animal. Questions? Email fosteranimal@auroragov.org or call 303.326.8395.

Will Hamm I love pets and I would love to own or foster, but I have such severe allergies that is not an option.  I really think that people who open their hearts to adopt a pet are doing a wonderful service!

Hello Will... I have adopted shelter pets (live with two of them now). I support my local shelter with money and food. But I could never foster... once those babies come into my house I could never let them go.  I'm in awe of people who foster and I have several clients who do just that.

Hi Will- I admire those who foster pets. My neighbor in FL and she was so loving towards them. Like Nina Hollander, Broker I have a feeling that it would be hard for me to give them up.

Will, It must be tough to foster these fur-babies, as I don't think I would ever be able to let them go!
