Needed: Foster Homes


Foster Care Program

Foster petsPets at the Kentucky Humane Society need YOU!  

Each year KHS takes in over a 1,000 pets who need a little time in a home before they can be adopted. Typically pets that need temporary homes are too young to be spayed/neutered and adopted, or pets who are recovering from illness, injury or surgery.

You can help KHS "expand its shelter walls" by providing a temporary home to these needy animals. By doing so, you'll help socialize a younger pet, or provide a comfortable, secure place for an older pet to recover. And you'll help KHS save more lives, as the most foster homes we have, the more needy pets we can take in.

Most of our foster caregivers work full time and have other pets at home. Many families enjoy fostering, as the experience teaches children how to care for young or injured pets and how they can personally make a difference in an animal's life.

If you haven't fostered an animal before, give it a try! You'll find it to be a rewarding experience, and you will have the assurance that you are helping KHS save more lives.
