A volunteer foster parent assists in the rehabilitation of an animal by providing in home care. The goal of the Foster Parent Volunteer is to help animals outside of the rescue environment who are underage, sick, injured, or under-socialized so that they may become healthy, adoptable animals.
Foster parents provide a clean, safe, loving environment for the animals in their homes. Our goal is to care for as many pets as possible in order to make them available for adoption. With the help of our dedicated volunteers, we’re able to save more lives every year.
Kathi’s K9s foster program provides a very rewarding experience for both the foster family and the lucky animal(s) involved. The goal of the foster program is to reduce euthanasia of potentially adoptable animals.

Ensure that all puppies and kittens are old enough to be placed as available for adoption,
Help animals with no history become adoptable by learning about their personalities,
Raise the standard of health in adoptable animals.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Kathi’s K9s will give you all of the supplies needed to care for foster animals. This includes food, litter, and medical care.
You will take underage, sick, injured, or under-socialized animals to your home until the animal is deemed ready to be put up for adoption.
You must have the time and ability to work with your foster animal(s). Your own pets should be spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated. It is ideal if you have a room or space in your home where the foster animals can be “isolated” from your own pets when necessary. You must also attend a foster training class.
Varies depending on the animal. Average stay is two weeks but can vary.
Kathi’s K9s Foster Coordinator is in charge of the program.
