Foster a Pet

The Kalamazoo Humane Society does not shelter or foster animals, but many local pet rescues do. 


Fostering helps animals by giving a pet the opportunity to adjust to life in a loving home.  It also helps relieve shelters when there are too many pets that need a temporary place to stay before being adopted.
