Pet Foster Parents Needed!

The Spokane Humane Society relies heavily on its foster parents to help save thousands of lives!

The Benefits of Fostering
  • Have an animal companion without the lifetime commitment.
  • Help an animal recover from an illness/injury, with medical care covered by SHS.
  • Give extra TLC to puppies and kittens too young to be adopted.
  • Foster homes help animals transition from the stress of living at the shelter.
Responsibilities of Foster Parents
  • Provide a safe, clean, and caring environment.
  • Provide food, water, litter, toys/enrichment, and shelter.
  • Provide exercise and socialization if appropriate.
  • Monitor for physical and mental wellbeing.
  • Transport to/from any necessary vet appointments.
  • Transport to/from offsite adoption events
  • If you are fostering kittens or puppies, isolation from other animals in the home is required for a minimum of 14 days.
