Foster parents provide temporary homes for animals prior to adoption. Providing foster care is a wonderful and personal way to contribute to saving and improving the lives of homeless pets.
Why Do Pets Need Foster Care?
There are several possible reasons:
Whatever the reason, these animals need some extra love and care before they can be adopted. Providing foster care for a week, a month, or more can be a lifesaving gift for an animal.
Foster Homes for Pets Who Need Medical Care
HSGKC takes in many pets who are sick or injured and would otherwise not have a chance without the care we are able to provide. Many of these pets are brought to us from KCK Animal Control who pick up pets who've been hit by a car or have been abandoned and are sick. We provide veterinary care for KCK Animal Control's dogs and cats, and sick or injured pets are often transferred to us for treatment and adoption.
Medical foster care is urgently needed for pets who have received medical treatment but need time to recover in a home environment before they are ready to be adopted. Broken bones, surgery recovery, upper respiratory infections, and demodex mange are some of the common medical care needs where foster homes can help us save more animals.
