The Ontario SPCA seeks foster volunteers in Sudbury area for animals in need of TLC

by | Media Releases |


Sudbury, ON (July 21, 2022) – Do you have room in your heart and in your home to help animals in need of foster care? If you’re interested in becoming a foster parent to animals who need extra TLC, the Ontario SPCA Sudbury & District Animal Centre needs your help.

Our animal centre is currently recruiting foster volunteers to temporarily provide a safe and nurturing environment in their home for animals in need. The Foster Program benefits animals who are not ready for adoption and who are either too young, sick, injured, under socialized or emotionally stressed to thrive in the animal centre environment. Instead, animals are cared for and rehabilitated in a nurturing foster home.

“Fostering animals in need is a rewarding experience for the volunteer and a critical source of support for our animal centres,” says Jen Hughes, Manager, Ontario SPCA Sudbury & District Animal Centre. “To give vulnerable animals the best opportunity at the second chance they deserve, we’re asking anyone who can help to join our team.” For more information on becoming a foster volunteer, visit
