Type of Foster Home: 
Sia needs an Advanced Foster home. If you've had a pet or fostered before, you have all the skills you need to be an Advanced Foster. 

Sia is looking for a foster home with an experienced foster family.  She can be a little nervous around new people, so a home where someone can go slowly with Sia would be ideal.  Sia would do best in a home where children are above the age of 15.   

How to Foster Sia:

New fosters can take the first step by learning about fostering and completing the Foster Care Application. Veteran foster parents can email to schedule a pickup appointment.

Sia is available for foster pick-up through the Adoption Center at 1997 N. Clybourn.

Sia's Story

Come see Sia! Sia came all the way from Tennessee to find her forever home. This show stopper is ready to take the stage and be center of attention.

Sia would do best in a home with no young children and with an experienced owner who is able to handle such strong girl!  Sia loves treats so much which is great of the continued training she requires, but she prefers to eat her meals undisturbed. This beautiful girl can be fearful of unfamiliar people, so slow introductions are ideal for her.


  • I love treats and training!
  • I would prefer an active home.


  • I love food and prefer to be undisturbed during meal time.
  • I would do best with family members 15 and older.




Why Foster?

There are many animals that need us today. Each foster family allow us to save more homeless pets by opening their home to a pet or litter in need of love and care for a few weeks. When we are able to send a pet or litter to foster, it frees up space in our Medical Center to bring in more pets in need.

Last year, our foster families took in 3,467 pets. Some needed a peaceful place to recover from illness or injury. Puppies and kittens just needed a bit of time in a home environment with good socialization so they could grow big enough to have their spay/neuter surgery before adoption. Other pets needed a calm and relaxing break from the stress of shelter life.

Consider joining them in lifesaving. Sign up to become a foster today.
