The Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter can always use more foster homes. We have dogs and cats in need of foster homes from puppies and kittens to seniors, small to big, and everything in between. We pay all approved medical expenses for our foster animals. We ask only that our foster homes care for the animal and help us make the animal a well-adjusted family pet, as well as help us decide which adopter is the right one for their animal. Foster homes get first “dibs” on the animal if they fall in love. We value our foster homes highly and work with them regularly to ensure the animal is doing well.

How to foster:

1. Visit the shelter at 3825 Proper Street in Corinth to be interviewed. An application will also need to be completed.
2. If approved, we will discuss the facility or home situation that matches the right animal with that foster. We then take the animal to the foster.
3. We will do drop in visits and make follow-up phone calls throughout the foster process. We value what you have to say about the animal. We want you to let us know what kind of home you think the dog needs.
