Being a hero to someone, even if it is a dog, is a feeling like no other. Though it can be frustrating, it can be the most rewarding thing to give someone a second chance at a happy life.

Kittens or Puppies
Time Commitment: 2 weeks – 2 months
Some kittens and puppies we get are too young to be placed up for adoption. In Kaua`i, kitten season never ends. We see everything from older groups eating solid food to nursing mothers to bottle babies on formula.
Mental Health Support
Time Commitment: Varies by Case
The shelter environment can be stressful and make it hard for some animals to put their best paw forward. Foster homes give those struggling in the shelter a chance to decompress and show their true personalities
Time Commitment: 2 weeks – 1 month
The dedicated veterinary team at KHS devotes time to a variety of medical needs encountered by shelter animals. Sick and injured animals heal best in foster homes where they don’t have to experience the stressors of the shelter.
