Foster Program

Foster families benefit the Kokomo Humane Society by providing temporary homes for:

  • Animals with minor health needs
  • Animals needing training 
  • Animals with litters too young to adopt 

 KHS Foster Families give extra care to animals, helping them find homes more quickly because of house training received through compassionate pet fostering. 

Consider welcoming one of our furry friends as a temporary guest in your home. Pet foster parents must be the owner/renter of a residence located in Howard County.
