Foster Program

Foster1Foster families are beneficial to the shelter, providing temporary homes for animals with minor health needs, animals in need of simple training or mothers with litters too young to adopt. Our foster families provide extra care to animals that cannot necessarily be provided at the shelter. Foster animals often find homes quickly because of the extra care and training they have had through fostering. Consider having one of our furry friends as a guest in your home/pet bed and breakfast. KHS will provide you with the supplies you need to successfully care for our animals. Foster parent applicants must live in Howard county and be the owner/renter of a home.
