Be a Foster Hero!

Be a foster hero!

Humane Society of Barron County is dedicated to the care of animals and the people who love them.
Our homegrown, private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization rescues, shelters and adopts more than a thousand companion animals annually.

Thank you for offering to be a hero to shelter pets searching for a forever loving home. Pets, like people, need a place to feel safe; a place where they can be themselves. Many pets are entering a new, and more hopeful, chapter in their lives and foster heroes like YOU get these adoptable pets out of the shelter and into a comfortable home until they find their forever families.


There's nothing more rewarding than successfully fostering a pet to adoption, and we are here to help you the whole way. All you have to do to get started is put in your address and preference in foster animal species below to find a shelter to apply to nearby. Thank you for offering a Good Home for a pet in need!
