Lanark Animal Welfare Society

Our mission is to promote the welfare of all animals, to provide shelter and care, and prevent cruelty and suffering for those animals in need.

Fostering Info

pet_vacationThe foster program is an essential tool for coping with the overcrowding issues that the shelter often faces. It is a way for kind-hearted individuals to give a shelter animal a less stressful environment  in which to heal, care for kittens/puppies and deal with behavioural issues such as separation anxiety.

no_place_like_homeFostering provides short-term care in safe, loving environments for friendly dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, and other animals in need until they are adopted into their forever homes. Fostering can last anywhere from a few days to several months and all medical costs are covered as are most other animal care costs.  You provide the space and the love.

This essential program maximizes the number of animals rescued, and offers a healthy alternative to shelter life. A good foster home provides opportunities for exercise and socializing and increases the opportunities for adoption and a smoother transition into a permanent home.

The win-win program offers individual animal lovers who cannot commit to long-term adoption, the opportunity to enjoy the company of a four-legged friend while making a difference in, not only the life of the fostered animal, but in additional animals that are able to be rescued as a result of the added space.

Those interested in entering the foster program should contact LAWS at 613-283-9308, by email , or download and fill out the Foster Application and return it to the shelter.
