As an open-admissions Animal Care Center, we accept all pets who are surrendered to us from our service area spanning over 450 square miles, including Charlotte County, most of Sarasota County, and the Boca Grande portion of Lee County. Because we accept all pets regardless of health, temperament, size, or breed, some pets require additional care in foster homes before becoming healthy enough for adoption.

Recently, we have received an increased number of senior dogs that require more time and medical care before becoming available for adoption. In order to help these dogs find forever homes, we need foster parents who are willing to open their homes and hearts to provide temporary shelter and basic medical care for these dogs in need. Our foster parents are provided pet food, veterinarian care, and medicines, and only have to provide water, shelter, and most of all, lots of love and attention.

If you are interested in helping these senior dogs on their journey to their forever homes, please contact Jacqueline Elliott, our Events and Volunteer Manager here at Suncoast Humane Society, by phone at 941-474-7884 or by email at You can also apply to become a volunteer online on our website.
