The Doc Williams SPCA Foster Care Program

To join the foster pets program, you will need to meet with our Foster Care Coordinator to see what kind of animals you would be suited to foster and to answer any questions you might have. There's a short application to fill out, and at some point, a home check, as required by the South Carolina Department of Agriculture. Periodic emails are sent to Foster Parents to let everyone know what dogs and cats need fostering. You will be added to the list and, if you see an animal you would be interested in fostering, just reply to the email!

If you think this is something you would like to pursue, please contact us at the following e-mail address Foster@docwilliamsspca.org or call 843-761-0683. If you're unable to foster pets in your home, please consider donating to help others become a loving foster to pets in the Berkley County area.
