Welcome, and thank you so much for your interest in fostering!
Each year, the Kentucky Humane Society saves the lives of thousands of animals. Our foster families are an integral part of that success.
Is Fostering For You?
Are you able to devote at least 1-2 hours per day to your foster animal?
Are you able to bring foster animals to the shelter for vaccinations and wellness exams every 1-2 weeks during office hours?
Are you able to separate your foster animals from your household pets for at least 7-10 days to protect them from illness and allow for a proper adjustment period?
Are you able to handle cleaning procedures such as routinely cleaning/disinfecting your foster space?
Are you able to handle any potential home damage, such as damage to a carpet, clothing, and/or furniture, that may be caused by an animal?
Are you prepared to handle sickness of your foster animal?
Are you able to emotionally handle saying goodbye when the foster period is over?
Last, but certainly not least
Are you excited to know that you helped save the life of animal?
