Foster Care Program

The Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center often receives animals that are too young or lack the proper socialization necessary to be placed for adoption . Foster Care Parents take these animals into their home, providing a safe environment for them to mature and become more socialized. Some need to be fostered for only a few days, while others may need extended care. 

The Center is urgently seeking interested volunteers to participate in this life-saving program.  Find out if fostering is right for you
