In-Home Heroes Animal Foster Program

MHS Foster Program

Experience first-hand how you can make an immediate and lasting impact on the life of an animal that needs your help

In-Home Heroes is the Michigan Humane Society’s short-term, in-home care program which saves lives by helping animals who need a little extra time and TLC prior to adoption. 

Animals may be placed in foster homes for a variety of reasons: illness, injury, they are too young for adoption, etc.  We supply the resources - you supply the love!
