Studio 814’s Rebecca Petner and Morgan Koziar hold cuddly kittens with Central Pa Humane Society’s Shelby Burns and discuss the importance of foster care.
Hospitality saves lives! The Central PA Humane Society relies heavily on foster homes to help care for the thousands of animals that come to the shelter each year.
One of the challenges that a no-kill shelter like CPHS faces is the lack of space to house the animals. Spring and summer are especially tough during “kitten season” when hundreds of unwanted kittens are born.
The Central PA Humane Society also uses foster homes for stressed animals that do not handle the shelter environment well and need “down time” in a home.
Are you a good candidate to host? Check the following requirements:
- A room that can be isolated from other rooms in the house (if you are housing pregnant cats/litters of kittens and have pets in your house).
- Proof of current rabies vaccination for other pets in the household.
- Proof of FVRCP vaccination for other cats in the household. Vaccination against FeLV is strongly recommended.
- Current rabies evidence for other pets in the home.
- Proof of DHLPP and Bordetella vaccinations for other dogs in the household.
- The dogs of the house must come to the shelter and meet the dogs you are looking to foster.
- Proof of sterilization for all pets in the home.
- The CPHS provides all medical care for foster animals.
- Host families are asked to provide food and bedding. CPHS will provide toys, blankets, bedding and other necessary supplies.
Meet the kittens!
