WHS Needs Foster Homes For Kittens

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) -  The Washington Humane Society is hoping you've got room in your home for a tiny bundle of purr this summer.

WHS is asking area residents to help ease the overcrowding in its adoption centers by providing temporary foster care to homeless kittens. Individuals, families, and businesses can help save lives by providing space and care for the more than 75 kittens currently in need during this busy summer season.

Foster volunteers are vital to the WHS community. Each time an animal is taken out of the adoption center and placed into a foster home, it provides space for another animal who needs special care and attention, and gives the foster pet a glimpse of what life will be like in that future forever home.

If you have the compassion and willingness to help needy animals, please contact WHS about serving as a foster volunteer. Foster terms can range from a few days or weeks to a month or more depending on the preferences of the volunteer and the needs of the individual animal.

WHS has a strong network of individuals and businesses that have provided temporary homes for animals in need. Foster volunteers keep animals in their home, storefront, or office, providing basic care, food, and shelter.

WHS provides routine preventative medical care, including spay/neuter services, vaccinations, heartworm or FeLV/FIV tests, and dewormer
