Volunteers like you play an essential role in both the physical and mental health of the animals here at the shelter. 

The more we consistently show these animals how to behave through a balanced daily routine, the better the quality of life they will have while they are with us. We together can create happier, healthier, and more Adoptable pets.


Foster homes provide temporary care for animals in our area that are in need. 

When partnering with Lodi Animal Services we will make sure you are given resources and guidance to be a successful foster parent.

The Most Important reason to become a foster parent is the reward of caring for an animal in need such as medical care and/ or behavioral modifications to help them increase their chance of adoptability. 

No matter what form of fostering you chose, (Bottle Babies, Shy Animals, Injured Animals or Sick Animals) the rewards are incomparable.
