In-Home Heroes is Michigan Humane’s short-term, foster care program which saves lives by helping animals who need a little extra time and TLC prior to adoption. Often referred to as animal fostering, our progressive program is designed with a convenient, structured focus, providing the maximum value to the animals, and to their temporary caretakers. 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.
