Foster Application
Wanderers’ Rest Humane Association (WRHA) is the sole open admission dog and cat shelter in Madison County. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care and compassion for the animals entrusted to us, striving to enhance adoptability, and re-homing adoptable animals at the highest rate possible, while educating and leading our community in creating a more humane society.

WRHA is located in Canastota, New York and serves more than one thousand dogs and cats from Madison County each year. Through our public education programs the shelter promotes responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of animals. Wanderers’ Rest is a non-profit 501c3 organization that welcomes contributions and volunteers.

Wanderers’ Rest depends on the help of fosters in many ways. Fostering can be a fun and rewarding way of helping the homeless pets entrusted to us. Just a few hours a week can make a huge difference in the lives of our sheltered pets.

Please fill out all areas of the application.
