FOSTER HOMES ARE NEEDED!
I'm a gentle boy who knows how to sit, knows down, and takes treats gently.
I also walk nicely on a leash and will wait patiently for a walk.
I'm a smart boy who pays close attention to what you ask of me and will enjoy learning new things.
I'm a 1- to 3-year-old Labrador Retriever who has a beautiful, milk-chocolate colored coat.
I was adopted once and returned because I didn't fit their household.
They think I may have been an inside-outside dog in my first home and may need that type of home again.
I darted for the door when it opened, didn't like to be crated, and tore up some window blinds.
The staff says I like being inside at the shelter and keep my kennel tidy.
The staff has noticed that when I am outside at the shelter, I like to be in the dog houses.
I appear to be fine with other dogs and cats. But it's always good to double check.
I'm very sweet, but also very pregnant!
I NEED A FOSTER HOME until my kittens are weaned.
I'm a 1- to 3-year-old, Calico gal with 'sunshine' orange patches.
I have a sunny personality too. I'm very snuggly right now.
I'm looking for reassurance that my pregnancy & kittens will be just fine.
I especially enjoy neck rubs.
The shelter will pay for my medical care and provides food during my foster.
After my kittens are weaned, the kittens go back to the shelter for adoption.
You can either return me too or adopt me yourself.
Fosters need to fill out an application that can be picked up at the shelter.
If you are interested, please be aware that any animal already in your home must be up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed or neutered.
You must have a home inspection completed by shelter staff and everyone in your home must agree to shelter guidelines.
If I already have a foster home, don't worry, the shelter guarantees there will be other opportunities to foster since it's kitten season.
Pets that are fostered are pregnant/nursing, being treated for heartworm, or recovering from other illness/injury and are not currently adoptable. Fostered pets are returned to the shelter when they are ready for adoption (unless you make arrangements with the shelter director to adopt your foster).
We do not use fosters for animals who are currently healthy and adoptable or who are on their stray hold as they need to be at the shelter for the public to meet/adopt/reclaim.
If you are interested, please be aware that any animal already in your home must be up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed or neutered. You must have a home inspection completed by shelter staff, and everyone in your home must agree to shelter guidelines.
The shelter pays for medical care and will supply food.
Applications can be picked up during business hours.
Cats and kittens are $45 off their adoption and spay/neuter fees courtesy of the shelter and the Jefferson County Humane Society. Cats who are already neutered or spayed are $45 and not part of the special.
